Here is no doubt the cause of your original problem, after all. READONLY
means that the field cannot be altered by the application at all - it
doesn't just stop the user!!

If the user can't see it anyway, you don't need to do anything to it. If
you are showing it to the user but don't want to allow the user to edit it,
then use NOEDIT.

The comment to make on this is that something seems hard, then there's
somethiing you're missing. And there was....

For future reference, don't omit important details from your problem
