Lock field but able to paste

Post by Michael Abrams »

I did a quick google search, and could not find this (assuming it is possible)

Is there a way to only allow a user to "paste" into a field, but not be able to type in that field?

The field is a text field with a person's full name. There are multiple records with the same name, but different variations.

Can this be done?

I know how to "lock" the field, but don't know how to allow only "paste"

The paste is coming from an external source (Excel,Word etc....)

Thank you !

I don't think so. Pasting is a form of editing...
