I have several roles setup in an ACL for a Notes database, so for example AAccess, BAccess, and so forth.  What I want to do is restrict whom can edit documents, so if someone for AAccess created, everyone else can read but not edit,(obviously the role for FullAccces(Manager))

Thanks a bunch....

Don't quite understand where you're going to...

All ordinary users in the database should have Author rights. To restrict who can modify a document, you need an Authors field in that document. In your case, if the document should be editable by someone with the AAccess role, the field should have the value "[AAccess]".

Doesnt it depend on what group or role the author is a part of?  If I have 4 crews A,B,C,D - 2 users each are assigned to the group A, B, and so forth.  I add each group the database ACL.  I then create four roles within the ACL so, A group has role AAccess, B has BAccess.  If A creates a document, then I only want A to be able to edit - everybody else can read.  If the authors field has the default value of [AAccess], how will it handle the other crews? Anybody can create a document..  Do I need to add an authors filed for each Crew i.e. A,B C, or D???

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can programmatically set the value of the Authors field of course. For example, if you set the value to @UserRoles, and you make the field Computed when composed, it will retain all roles of the creator.

Yes you will need a reader field with all the other roles in it

Did you consider to split the points? Or didn't you know that it is possible? See the EE-Help about how to grade and to reward experts: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp

You should be here more often, unless you never have problems :-)  

Next time better...
