Portal that allows a user to change only SOME fields of a spreadsheet layout (related list of data)

  • What is the best way to setup a page that will show a list of items (related list i guess) in a table/spread sheet format. I want the portal user to be able to view the list and do 2 things: 1. Have a text area to enter any notes on line by line basis and 2. have access to 1 drop down field for every line of the spread sheet to change. Example: Account Name, Account #, Balance, STATUS (picklist), COMMENTS (text area) I want them to be able to change the dropdown (status) and enter notes into comment - but not be able to change any of the other data in the table. What is the best way to do this in a portal page? It seems an editable view would do it, but do those exist in a portal?
  • Please do this:
    1. Create an empty section on portal (or any other) edit/new/status page
    2. Drag-and-drop "Grid Control" there
    3. After saving, press "Configure" link next to page and configure Grid Control: select relationships, columns etc.
  • Where do I get a grid control to drag and drop?
  • In "page Edit" mode there is a toolbar on the left with all available components.
  • Is there ANYWAY to make some of the grid data read only?
  • Please provide a screen capture or some drawing so I could understand your request better. At a moment I afraid we're talking about different things.
