I can't enter any kind of data into fields that
are originally from childdatabases.
I opened the set that I made and entered
data into the parentdatabase. However, it won't let
me enter or change data in the child databases.

If this is a one-to-many set, then you cannot enter into the child database unless you create a separate browse or subform for the child database. When creating screens for sets, you must remember that the set is a composite record of the parant and each child. the main form is for the parent. We use sets extensively, and we either set up a browse or subform on the main screen, but the form or browse is based on the child, not the parent.

If you are good, the user will not even know that there are two separate screens being used.
