Currently, when I create a spike I am unable to enter anything in for the “Affects Version/s” field. When creating a story I can edit this field but when creating a spike I cannot edit this field? I would like to be able to edit this field so I can include all sprints that this Spike is affecting?
It seems 'Spike' is another issue type similar to 'Story' in your project. Correct?
You need to add “Affects Version/s” field to the respective screen used by 'Spike' issue type.
You can find the correct screen from Project settings > Screens. Click on the screen used by 'Spike' issue type and added “Affects Version/s” field to it.
I'm going to take a guess you're on Jira Server and/or Data Center?
If yes, unlike Cloud where the field options are a little more flexible, there are a few fields which are static on the issue view in Server, even if they are not in your screens, including Affects Versions - meaning you can see it, but can't access it.
To edit the field within your Spike, you'd need to add the field to the screen - to check if it's there:
If it is there - you can check the operations within your screen scheme:

^ If neither of these work - or you're on Cloud - provide some screenshots like Veera mentioned :)
