looking for examples of how to best edit large forms

i'm redesigning an application that collects large amounts of form
data, about 100 fields of info that i've divided across 3 or 4 pages
and each of these pages i've broken up further into 3-6 logical
groupings. the form is displayed in 2 columns, labels on the left,
textboxes on the right. if someone wants to edit the information in
the form my thought is to simpley display it in this format, that way
a user can see the information and edit it if they would like.
i've been asked to show the form information in a list or tabular
format so it is more easily scanned, and then allow a user to click
either an individual field of the group of elements if they want to
edit the information, such as they do in facebook or even salesforce.
my preference is to leave the form in its current layout, but i have
to show this new layout idea.
does anyone have any ideas on how to best show this editable
information or perhaps even examples?
