Document having got to double figures is praised (7,2)
I believe the answer is:
'praised' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are past participle verbs, I cannot see how one could define the other.
'document having got to double figures' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'document' could be 'written' (synonyms) and 'written' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'up' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
'is' is the link.
Can you help me to learn more?
