Hi Jim,

Have you tried MODIFY SELECTION instead of MODIFY RECORD?
Set the table in read only mode, make sure only the requested record is in the 
current selection and then open the record using MODIFY SELECTION. Without the. 
optional * parameters, this command should open it immediately in the input 
form for a one record selection.
If I remember correctly, no lock alert will be shown.

Otherwise you might try to use an error handler to get rid of the alert.

If a field is set to focusable but not enterable, the user can't edit the 
content, but will be able to select and copy.
