    Group Access



      Group Access


      I have a database with 2 groups, 4 passwords, 3 layouts, and many fields.  I have gone through the steps in the book to set up proper access to a group...i.e., clicking on the group, then identifying which layouts and fields this group should be able to access.  I understand the solid dots, the blurred dots, and the open dots.  I then clicked "save."  When I sign in as a user of say Group 2, I can see layouts that I shouldn't be able to see.  I have gone through this process for hours.....any suggestions on how to get the changes to "take" while setting up groups?

          Welcome to the forum, Apple,


          Can you confirm the version you're using? - sounds like pre-7.


          I had a similar problem years ago, but it was because I hadn't realised that I could only make changes whenever I highlighted the Group.  I found it misleading because I could click on the other columns in the access table and apparently change things, and I seemed to be able to make changes but then they just didn't stick.


          I accept that you say you are 'clicking on the Group', but your problem sounds very similar to the misunderstanding I had.
