If he's using QDLS docs why not use built-ins?

Please don't use anything you can get to using WRKFLR. That's the QDLS file system that's limited to 8.3 character naming and has some performance issues.
Better to use a different area of the IFS. Use a directory outside of /qdls that you can get to using WRKLNK. Option "9=Work with authority".
See also CHGAUT. You can use that to assign an authorization list. And your authorization list can have them as read only.

What type of document? A document as in WRKFLR document? If so can't you
use option 14 at the folder and document level to assign authority?

I have an 810 on 5.4. I know, I hear you all moaning.

We have our main application software and then we have a document creation
software that we tie into from our application for notes, etc.

Our main application software has the ability to restrict a user to data
which was created using just their ID. Our document software does not.

Once in our main application software, a user selects F8 to get to the
document software and they can enter edit, view the notes.

Can I restrict that user from editing the document using some kind of
authorization list or group profile and what parameter in that profile
would help me limit them to read only

I appreciate any help and thank you all in advance.
