      Hide in fields when restricting access to records

      Post

      I am restricting access to records using the login account name and custom privileges.  However, records without the proper account name has <no access> in every field.  Is there a more customer friendly way of showing or stating "no access"... like just leaving the fields empty or grayed out?

          Simply perform a find for the records with the account name.

          As I understand it, any find you perform will automatically omit any records that are <no Access>. This can be scripted to take place when the file is first opened. With this one change, the only way a user can encounter <no Access> records is if they use one of the other Records menu actions such as show all records. If you have FileMaker advanced, you can create a custom menu that subsitutes your scripts for the Show all, show omitted only options that avoid these steps.
