FM - Your Access Privileges to not allow you to perform this action

Changed security from a custom ReadOnlySomeMods to the default DataEntryOnly security group and now when I log in, one of the 4 db's gives me an error when trying to open it, "Your Access Privileges to not allow you to perform this action."  However, I switched from the more limited ReadOnlySomeMods to the less limited DataEntryOnly.  Any suggestions?  It occurs on the File:Open script step.

Do you have a Startup script in that file which is attempting to perform an operation that might not be permitted? You can click the "Run script with Full Access Privileges" checkbox in the bottom part of the Edit script dialog if you need to to make it run properly.

Good thought, but didn't solve problem.  While it wasn't in the startup script, in the dbOpenbyParameter script, I had a CommitRecord step that didn't have "Run script with Full Access Privileges".  However, I still have the same problem.

Turns out I had never used Data Entry Only in 1 of my dbs (Vacancy) and when I used it, it seems that the checkbox for "Access via FileMaker Network" was not checked.  It is in my other db's, so I'm guessing it was unchecked sometime before my time.  Anyway issue resolved.

Giving partial credit.  Even though Will did not solve my particular problem (I did), his suggestion was valuable as it revealed a possibe problem in the future -- that I had not always checked "Run script with Full Access Privileges", especially on scripts that modify fields.
