Lock/Unlock
All historical data in D4COST is locked when shipped and will always remain locked, so that you can not alter the original data. When you model, you copy locked data to a new project. The new project will be unlocked until such time that you want to choose to lock it to prevent accidental overwriting of sensitive data. When you enter your own historical data, you are advised to lock your case studies.
