How to view read only field after created a record but not while creating.

Hi friends.

I am new to Salesforce. I am learning SFDC customization. Kindly help.
I have a custom field (Fee) in accounts tab and which have workflow to get value from Course(Custom) tab. I want to view this field only after saving the record but not while creating the record. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Two ways to do this

1. Make the field as Read-Only either through Field Level Security or Page Layouts, however it would still show the label name on the edit page without any textbox/picklist.
2. Create a visualforce edit page and you will have full control of what fields to show or hide.
You can do this by using recordset I guess.
