Evaluating Group name members with script

Hi Guys

The users go into a database and can see only their own documents. The ACL says reader/no roles for group name. The documents say that feild x has the persons name in it and it is a 'Readers type field.
However the user can go into edit (button/double click/ctrl-e), make changes but gets rejected when they try to save the changes. This is a good thing but how do I keep them from getting into edit. Code in the QueryModeChange??

I think the problem has to do with evaluating Group name members with script.

They could have access through some other ACL entry, or there could be a chacheing issue on either client or server.

Restart the server, shut down the clients, and delete teh cache.dsk from all clients.

The records are created by an agent

The users are only readers

The ACL checks out OK

try below code:

Sub Querymodechange(Source As Notesuidocument, Continue As Variant)
            Dim session As New notessession
      Dim item As notesitem
      Dim doc As notesdocument
      Dim result As Variant
      Dim macro As String
      
      Set doc=Source.document
      user=session.commonusername
      
      user_roles =Evaluate("@UserNamesList")
'this is for roles:
      Forall role In user_roles
            
            If ( role = "[Admin]")  Or (role="[Manager]") Or (role="[Partners]") Or (role="[Secretary]") Then
                  
                  continue=True
                  Exit Sub
            End If
            
      End Forall
      
      Dim readitem As notesitem
      Set readitem=doc.Getfirstitem("readers") 'to get user names from a field saved in the document      
      For x=0 To Ubound(readitem.values)
            If user=readitem.values(x) Then
                  continue=True
                  Exit Sub
            End If
      Next
      doc.SaveOptions="0"
      Msgbox "You are not authorized to edit this document",64,"Information"
      continue=False
      Exit Sub
      'Call Source.close
      End      
End Sub
