Make sure the grid or transaction has not been set to ReadOnly.

TIB_DataSource.AutoEdit must be true if you want to be able to
initiate edit mode by simply typing into a field. Can you alter the
field if you hit the Edit button of the updatebar first?

Set IB_Query.ColorScheme := true so that you can get a visual
indication of whether the row you are trying to edit is in dssEdit
state or not. Then retry your tests. Are you getting into edit
mode - and it is only the field that is readonly - or are you not
getting to edit mode at all?
