Restricting and hiding sections

Hi Everyone...
I have a form entitled "Communication" that serves as a template for business-related news/communications.   A select group of people is authorized to create documents with this form.

Everyone with authorization to use the form is included in a role entitled "Restricted."

There is a section in the form that has a couple of buttons to issue the communication, and some other behind-the-scenes fields.   I am trying to find a way to allow only the "Restricted" role to see and use this section.  I want it to be invisible to everyone else.

I have tried several different combinations of section access formulas and "hide when" formulas but have been unsuccessful in achieving what I'm after.

Does anyone have any ideas about how I can make this section visible and editable ONLY by the role "Restricted?"

I appreciate the help.   Thanks.

In your hide when formula use this (for whole section)

@isNotMember("[Restricted]"; @UserRoles)

I tried doing what you suggested and it doesn't seem to be working.  I tested it by sending the communication to someone that doesn't have the role "Restricted" and they were still able to see the section.

Any other suggestions?

Block the section and hide it using text properties hidewhen tab.

For the security to be working, the db should be on server.

Secondly, You have to collapse the whole section and select it to hide.

If you want you can send me the db, so that I can send it back with the correct formula in it.
