Hi I would

like to know why this is happening

Out of the blue I get error message

Notes Error: You cannot update or delete the document(s) since you are not listed as an allowableAuthor for this document

I removed all the edit rights and  reader fields and still I get this error
Any ideas

PS I am using multiple ID's so this error happens when I am using the ID of an approver

Hi adspmo,

You are probably listed as an authro in teh ACL.  An author, to edit a document, needs to belisted in an AUTHRO NAMES field on teh document, not a reader names field.  f there is no authro names field at all, it requires editor ACL access -- no author will be allowed in.  (That's different from teh way readers work, where if there are no readers, then everyone is a reader.)

Fro delete, tehre is an additonal complication.  In teh ACL, youc an have proper author/edit rights, but be specifically restricted from deleting

Best regards,
qwaletee

Eventhough you remove the field from the form, the document will have it recorded. Remove the field from documents by creating agent to run on selected documents and with following command

FIELD DocAuthors := @DeleteField;
@All

Thanks for points.

Was it an ACL problem or an author field problem?

if you have a authors field and don't contains your name in it. you will get this error, is not revelant with readers field. so only need to remove that field, it can work.
