Unable to edit a field in Detailed Address Card in Contacts

I use the Detailed Address Card in contacts as my current view. I have gone in and modified this to add fields that I need to see up front in this view without opening the contact. One of them is from the "ALL NOTES FIELD" called "Subject".

Previously I had been able to go to the contacts with this modified view of the detailed address card and change (right there - without actually opening the contact) the text entered in the "Subject" field. I no longer can edit the information in that field. I do not get any error codes, just a beep when I try to delete a letter or type a letter

Can anyone help? I have made sure the field is set up as text. If I create a new field to replace the "subject" field, I lose the information already in that field for each contact.

Are you able to edit any other field in contacts? Or is that happening to a specific contact. Did you use any custom form to create the field?


I can edit all the other fields without a problem, even the user defined fields I generated. I did not use a custom form to create the field, the field already existed in the "all notes" category. This problem happens with all of my contacts not just one or two.

Have you tried using the All Contact Fields list, rather than All Notes Fields?
