I am using SharePoint 2010,

I have a custom list where users can edit,delete items.

I  require if user1 is contributor,then he only could edit or delete his item.

(Other user2,user3....from contributor group cant edit/delete his item)

Is this possible in any way.

looking for any good luck

    Hi MineSharePoint,

    Thanks a lot.

    It is there.... but unfortunately when let say user2  tries to save/delete any item of other user, it is giving very shabby...bad error screen.

    Can we hide the option itself from user2.

    Thanks in adv.

    well, it is not at user-login level, but at list/library level.
    id you are stuck with this requirement, the only way i c is to create n number of lists each for a user & give the required acess to particular user on particular list.
