Is it possible to add the value in a field to the ACL, I have a field which has all the managers who will need to access. Instead of adding in all the names, can I link to the values in that field itself?

You can't "link" to it, but you can code an agent that will keep the ACL up to date based on the contents of a field.  Look at the NotesACL class in LotusScript.

Lastly, you can use an ACL role in a field, and use that easily to give access based on whether the user has that role.

You should read up on reader and author field if you are not already familiar with them.

I hope this helps !

Are you refering to the database-level ACL, or to document-level reader or author restrictions?

qwalatee, I have author fields in the docs and a mgr field that the person is listed in, but I just wanted to be able to give access to those people without having to leave the DB open.
