Restricting Access in Navigators
Posted on 2002-06-07
Is there any way to restrict access to various areas of a database at the navigator level?
I inherited a database to maintain. Upon entering the database, the first thing the user sees is a full screen navigator (no views are shown). What I'm trying to do is to enable only certain users to view everything in the database.
Other users that click the navigator buttons to access restricted areas should not be able to. Is there a way to do this?
I have seen instances where people click a navigator button pointing to restricted views, and the navigator says something like "The view does not exist" or something to that effect. But then, it takes them into the view anyway. Hardly an ideal way to restrict access.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm using R5.
