Cells locked in form accessed/opened with a form link.

Technote (troubleshooting)


Open the EQ(Equity) form with link (Form Link) from the Balance sheet and cells are locked in the EQ


Cells locked in the linked to form.


This is because accounts that exists in Form EQ
also exist in Balance Sheet form and the user cannot have write access to the
same account/period/actuality/company in two forms at the same time.

Diagnosing the problem

Open the EQ form directly from the menu Company, data entry,
then the cells in the form are open for manual entering.

Resolving the problem

1. Open the form from Company Data Entry to enter values

2. Take the input accounts out of the balance sheet form, leave only the summation account(which is not available to enter data )
