Hi,
has anybody tried ..or got a solution in order to restrict a non logged in user from viewing a particular db column which happens to be a link to a file.

i.e. non logged in users can view the rest of the table columns output, but not the one which has a link to a file.
The users are going through a php interface.

I've got the usual in place, session, login in/out etc.
thanks

There is no generic solution to that, you have to implement it on each page that you have that display.  Something like:

if($loggedin) echo $row['restricted'];
