Login Screen

We have QB 2006 Accountant installed on Windows 2003 Server. we have Multiple companies and Users on QB 2006.

Can we Restrict a user to view only his company name in the Company List which is displayed before login screen and also restrict the user from
1) creating a new company
2) Open an Existing Company
3) Restore a Backup File
4) Open a Sample File

Basically i Just want the user to View and Access only the Company Assigned to him wihout knowing the other list of companies.
I have attache a file for refrence

Looking Forward for the Reply

Thanks in Advance

There is not a way to accomplish what you are wanting thru Quickbooks, you can do file level security on NTFS to accomplish the not being able to open the sample file, create a new company (at least on the network)
Maybe you can edit that dialog using a resource editor but you defenitly loose all kinds of support from quickbooks that way.

Can you please give more information on the resource editor
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

How about giving them a shortcut directly to the QBW data file ? I know it's not quite the full solution but it should never show that menu again.

Thanks for your response, I have tried your suggestion but when the user clicks on CANCEL button he goes back to the Menu
javidmasti - There is no way to accomplish what you are wanting, I had a tech support call with Quickbooks last week and did ask them the question while I was fixing something else. This is not anything they said can be done as well.
