I have created a view and in this view, there are 4 columns - Category, Department, Date and Subject. In this view, there are a lot of documents and in the document, there are 2 fields - an editable readers field called AuthorizedReader (multivalues) and an authors field called AuthorizedAuthor(multivalues).

When user A is not listed in both fields(AuthorizedReader and AuthorizedAuthor), he/she will not be able to see the document in this view. Only when user A is listed in either AuthorizedReader or AuthorizedAuthor field, then he/she can open the document in the view.
If user B is listed in either fields, he/she will be able to see the document in the view and open it to see.This apply to users B,C,D and so on...


How do I hide those documents in a view when user A who is not listed in both fields?

Pls advise.
Thank you.

Don't understand. If user X has neither Reader nor Author rights, he just won't see the document in the view. If both fields are indeed of the Readers and Authors types.

Sjef is right!
One other thing to check though: did you enter common names in the autors/readers fields (won't work!) or abbreviated/canonicalized names (ok)?

CRAK is back :)

Good thinking about those names, let's hope he allows users to select names from a view list.

You didn't really miss me, did you?
I did check every day.... all Lotus TA's, but what's there to add to a question that already got loads of top-15 responses? I'll read them as PAQ if I ever need them....

From a view list? What's wrong with the NAB?

NAB: functionally equivalent. I meant to say: anything is better than manual input.

I know what you meant..... of course!
That remark was somewhat directed to kopibean as well. Just to make sure he wouldn't set up additional forms, views etc.
