Can't edit part of page - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I've set up an asp page in Dreamweaver that pulls in results from a database. My client needs to edit the right hand side of this page, but can't select the area to edit. I haven't set up a template or non-editable region and I can't figure out why that area is not editable. Does it have something to do with the asp code?...

    Default Can't edit part of page

    I've set up an asp page in Dreamweaver that pulls in results from a database.
    My client needs to edit the right hand side of this page, but can't select the
    area to edit. I haven't set up a template or non-editable region and I can't
    figure out why that area is not editable. Does it have something to do with the
    asp code?

    I assume the 'needs to edit the right side of this page' is not database
    results?

    I'm a newbie, but there's a Role setting on the Editing tab... 'Protect
    scripts and forms (script tages, includes, CFML, ASP, etc'. Might be that your
    asp script tags are around some of the text you want them to edit and with this
    Role setting is checked, they can't get into text to edit?? SGimbal

    Contribute is not as powerful as Dreamweaver is. it does not have the ability
    to edit portion of the pages created with dynamic codes.

    If you would like to do it in contirbute you would need to use a text editor
    like "note pad or text edit" then edit the ASP codes.

    Contribute has a feature under Files>actions>edit page source in an external
    appilcation; by clicking so will pull up note pad or other applications you
    have set up to edit your dynamic codes.
