Hi there! How can I place security on specific fields on a screen . I.e: I have created some custom fields ( boolean, dates, text …) in a few tables like Item, Vendor, Customer, etc and I would like to restrict acess to those fields only to managers that should be able to change their contents. How can you do that with Nav Permissions?? Thanks.
Hi You can either create a dedicated form for management in which the necessary fields are available, or you can add code to the OnOpenForm trigger to make the controls unvisible if the user is not a member of the management role. Unfortunately it is not possible in Navision to set access permissions on field level, only on record (tabledata) level. Regards,
Hi Steen, what do you mean by “create a dedicated form for management” ? as i just want to be able to give access let say on the “general tab” of the Vendor card to some custom fields and I prefer that sln. So if you can explain in more details how you’ll do that. Thanks

Actually it is possible with this add on http://www.lanhamassoc.com/securitymgmt.htm you can also search the forum for “Field Level Security” for more posts like this one: http://www.mbsonline.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11725
Thanks H Ruiz. But in that case, what is the purpose of “security filter” thant we can see into Roles permissions??
