General Information fields with an * hiding the information


For some reason we have an asterick in some of our General Information fields that hide the information in the field (project #) and we are unable to go in and change / remove it in FAS as the field is uneditable, however, when we export the report to excel, we are able to see the information.  Is there a way to make this field editable with the asterick or make it so no-one can enter an asterick in these information fields?

Thank you,
