Is it possible to to hide/ remove a section from certain users?

I can do this to an individual control by applying a rule stating hide control if user is not bla bal bal.

This is fine but I want to know h ow I can achieve this by applying to a whole section.

I would like to use one form for all new starters and have IT fill out a section, payroll fill out another section and HR another section. Each section can only be filled in by the relative users.

Hi - I'm actually working a similar case in a nother forum.  I don't have 2010 yet, but another expert that is assisting in my other case said you can apply conditional formatting to the section (as long as by section you mean that these controls are in a section control)

- Select the control

- The "Control Properties" tab should light up and you should see "Manage Rules"

- Click the New button on Manage Rules and select Formatting

In 2007 you can move existing controls into a new section, so it should be fine in 2010 as well.

Another way at this to is to use 2 views, one for one group and one for another.

Another nice thing in 2010 is the ability to copy and paste rules from one control to another.
