Please don’t present a question as a statement. “The status is Read-only and the user cannot modify the data.” Yes. True. Read-only means the user can only read the information. Thank you and have a good night.
In a sufficiently cowed tone, “If the user needs to modify the information, what options does he have?” Ahhh, a question. Thank you. The user can return the document to the originator who can change the status so the user can make the necessary change. “Oh, good idea, thanks.” Duh.
