May I know what configuration should we set in order for certain column to be edit-able (and some column not edit-able) for a Data Source in a SharePoint Designer 2007? The column that to be set not edit-able are to be display and should not hide from the end-user.
Inside the Office SharePoint Designer 2007 (for SharePoint Server 2007), there is a Data Source Library that shows SharePoint Lists, Libraries, Database Connection and so on. If we drag a SharePoint List called 'Inventory' from the Data Source Library window into a custom aspx file, it will display a table showing data inside the List. If we select the 'Data View properties' and under the 'Editing' tab, it provide us 3 checkbox - one for edit item, one for delete item and one for insert item. Suppose that the 'Inventory' contain 5 column, all column must be display and the first 2 column cannot be editable. The rest of the column must be editable.
