Helen, unfortunately after having set the TIB_Cursor "FieldsReadOnly"
property for the fields I would like to edit, it is still not allowing the
data-aware TIB_Edit components to be edited. :-(


For testing, I have added a TIB_Query, I have made 1000% sure that the
properties match the TIB_Cursor, I have duplicated the TIB_Edit and link it
to the TIB_Query. I have also made sure the properties of the new TIB_Edit
components(which are "link" to the TIB_Query) also match the existing
TIB_Edit components (link to the TIB_Cursor). To my surprise in the case of
the TIB_Query it all works fine, but not in the TIB_Cursor case. %-)

Help, suggestion, ideas, criticism, even lol would be appreciated at this
