The problem with allowing the user to change it is that they are 
bound to make mistakes, especially when in a hurry. This will lead to 
lots of forms and paper being printed wrong and then the need to 
rectify it plus reprint again, leading to further delays.

I know there is a way to do this in 4th Dimension but I'm hoping to 
avoid having to do my development in 4D instead of Revolution.
