disabled columns writing null to DB

hi all
i have an app im building and there is a tabular form with some pairs of columns... one column is a code and the other is a description.
i have LOV popups that populate the description based on the code chosen.
which is now all working really well.

i then disabled all the description fields in the tabular form (for the 25 rows displayed), which on the surface looks great.
the user selects the code in the popup and the description changes. and the description cant be edited.
but when the submit button is clicked, those 25 description fields get written as NULL to the database.

is this normal?

do i just need to enable the fields again before submit? or is there a better way of doing it?

thanks in advance
Ryan
