Field Security

I am using Act2007 and am the only user (administrator).

 

I would like to protect certain fields such that they cannot be inadvertently changed by me. I am aware of the Field Security option, but this would not work as I am the administrator and have full access rights (I cannot give up these rights and change myself to a user).

 

I am thinking of protection the way Worksheets and Cells in Microsoft Office Excel can be protected (password protected). So if I wanted to change a specific field in Act, I would have to manually enter a password to do so.

 

Suggestions welcome.

Re: Field Security

That could work, it wouldn't be interactive like the password app, but may still accomplish the goal of warning the user before data changes.

Re: Field Security

With the default functionality I'm not aware of a way to accomplish this.

 

There are field triggers that are capable of launching external programs when the values of a particular field is changed, but the app that gets launched would probably need to be a custom one that accepts a password and retains the changes if the pword is correct.

Re: Field Security

Hello,

Thanks for that. The auto-launch of a programme may well be an option, say a .txt file with a warning message.

Thank you for that.
