Error getting substrings

Hello,

This is probably a painfully easy question, but it's driving me nuts. I am trying to populate a text field with substrings of another text field using the Field Calculator. My code is:

!Sign_Inven![0:2]


When I execute this, I get error 000732 : Dataset does not exist or is not supported. I know my data exists because I am currently working with it. Does anyone have an idea as to what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you,
Robert



Update: The Field Calculator is inoperable even without the Python statement, so this is probably more of a permissions issue. But if anyone has a hunch that would be greatly appreciated.
