I have the folder called Departments.  Inside departments I have sales, vp, marketing, trainers.  I would like for users to be able to click on departments and only see the folder that they have access to.

Hi michaelcamden,

Ah. Yes. Novell had a "list" security option. Setting "List" to no and "Read" to no and the user couldn't get to it, even if they knew it existed.

On Windows though ....

There is a List/Read deny, so MAYBE you can hide the folder that way.

It will also depend upon which version of Windows. You will find that servers have more options than, say, win95.

Group the users of same department under a group name.

Set the Permission of the folder, revoke permission for Everyone, and grant permission only to the accessible department group.

That's not possible using plain NTFS permissions, but assuming you have SP1 installed, you can do that with Access Based Enumeration. Onve you've configured ABE for a share, a user will only see documents and shares for which he has permissions.
Note that the ABE functionality is included in SP1 by default, but it doesn't have a user interface; the download below will just install the necessary tools to manage ABE:
