Navigating in Banner 9
The issue you are encountering is due to how Banner will take the security level of the page (or pages) you visited prior, and apply them to the current page you are on. For example, if you were in a query only page like SFAREGQ, then moved into SOATEST, the level of security (query only) from SFAREGQ would then apply to SOATEST, and you would receive the "Running in query mode" message. To alleviate this issue, you will want to close out of each of the open pages by clicking the "X" in the upper left corner of the page. Do this for all open pages until you return back to the Welcome screen. Once at the welcome screen you can then enter SOATEST and when you access the page you should have the ability to make editing changes. Another option to clear the query only mode is to open a new banner session by opening a new tab and logging into banner, or copying and pasting the banner URL into a new tab.
