How to Change a Document's Security Setting





How to Change a Document's Security Setting

The security level can prevent a user from viewing or modifying the records or layout for a document. DataEase provides three levels of security: Document-Level, Field-Level, and User-Level.

The security level for a specific document or field takes precedence over each user’s security level, as defined on the User Information form.

For example, if the application designer sets Modify Records to High for a form, a user with a Medium Security level cannot enter or modify the records of this form, even though users with a Medium Security Level are generally allowed to enter or modify records.


1. Open the document in Designer View, choose Document>>Security. DataEase displays the Document Security dialog;

2. To change any security level setting for a document, click on the new settings in the appropriate drop-down list boxes;

3. Click OK to close the dialog.


Note: The security level for a document that defines a table takes precedence over the security level for a document that uses a table. Invalid security level settings do not appear as choices in the Document Security dialog.
