Hiding fields on the detail page

I have created 3 fields - Document number (formula field to combine Document and Number), Document (pick list for all the various documents types we have) and Number (number field)

I want 'Document Number' field to show on the Detail Page ONLY and the other 2 fields to show on the Edit page ONLY. 

I know you can control the section headings on what view you want to see them on, but is there a way to do this with fields as well for an instance such as this?  I've searched help, but can't find anything.

The page layout controls the New, Edit, and View (Detail) pages in salesforce.  There is currently no way in the page layout editor to display a field on only one of these three pages.

Seems like a great suggestion to post to our IdeaExchange.  If you want people to vote your idea up come back to this thread and leave a comment with a link to the idea so that other users who have the same challenge can easily find it.

You can delete a specific field from detail page of any object. Go to page layout and there you can remove the field.
