Restricting Fields in the Check Design Software

Once a check/label template is created using the Check Design Software, we would like to restrict some fields from being updated by other that may be using the template. Is there a formula that can be used to protect the field?

Operating System: Windows 7

The following is a list of what is supported in the Check Design Software:

Operators:
/ divide
* multiply
& concatenate words
- subtract
+ add
VBCRLF adds a new line

Variables:
L# label number
T# total number of labels. Example: "This is label " & L# & " of " & T# produces This is label 2 of 5.
Date() returns the current date; for example 11/18/2010
LabelField(name) returns the value of the Label Field variable. Example: LabelField(ChkNum)

Date Macros:
Date() returns the current date, 11/18/2010
Time() returns the current time, 2:16 PM
Year() returns the current year, 2010
Month() returns the current month, 11
MonthName() returns the current month name, November
Day() returns the current day, 18
DayName() returns the current day name, Thursday.

External Data:
Field(col) returns the value in the linked data source for the column [col] of the current row. Example: Field(1)
FieldName(name) - returns the value in the linked data source for the column according to the current row.

As you can see, there is not a mechanism by which one can use IF THEN ELSE statements. Your team might want to filter the data or implement some VBA (if using Excel or Access) to accomplish this on the data-source side.
