      Hide windows as file opens

      Post

      My database has different screens which open depending upon the priveleges relating to the type of user. I am having a problem when I open the file - it always displays the windows from the previous session. Whilst its not disastrous as the windows are blanked out with a 'No Access' message, its anoying.

       

      I have a script set up that examines the user privileges and based upon the user, open the relevant window. Its the others that open behind that are anoying.

       

      Any idea how I can stop this from happening? Seems like it should be simple.

       

      Thanks

          Thank you for your post.

           

          There is a script step "Open File" with the option to "Open hidden".  Therefore, you could evaluate the user privileges, and depending on the result, Open File or Open File Hidden.

           

          If you need clarification, please let me know.
