Uneditable Data

The Uneditable Data option allows you to specify that a field cannot be edited or deleted by a user.
  22.2Any kind of field, except a Computed Field, can be made uneditable.  If editing is attempted, the field's value, along with a No Editing message, will be displayed. If, however, the value is part of a subfield, the deletion of the entire entry in the Multiple-valued field will be allowed -- unless the .01 field of the Multiple itself is made uneditable.

You can also use this option to remove the uneditable restriction on a field that has previously been made uneditable.
