Hello:

How to prevent accidental delete or edit of records on a form?

I sometimes find myself with "aaaaaa" or "111111" in a field. With people dumping pile of docs on the keyboard , this happens often.

Is there a way to toggle "Allow field to be entered" (like in field format) On and Off with a script on a button to prevent this type of accidental edit?

There are lots of ways of doing this. The simplest is to have separate browse and "edit" layouts. The browse layout fields have entry disabled so they can see the data but not change it. Users have to explicitly change to the edit layout before that can make changes.
