Darned if I know. I can't see the point of disabling controls, since the
mode of the datasets enables/disables them anyway. You can set AutoEdit
off if you don't want a keystroke to shift the dataset into Edit mode.

I guess you must have some reason why you don't want the controls to get
the focus in browse mode; but I wonder how you could browse an ib_memo
when it's disabled.

Also, why are you using Append? Just curious...
