Read / Write Capabilities Dependent on Fields
I never previously needed to do this with Filemaker, but I was wondering if there was a way to make a record read only once a certain value piece in a list was committed? Basically If you had an estimate page and once that estimate was labeled an "order" it no longer could be modified. An admin could jump in, change the value back to "open" or the user could duplicate the record and modify the duplicate but once the original is "locked" it remained read only? Thanks all.
You can lock all the fields in a record in that fashion using Manage | Security...
See "Editing record access privileges" in FileMaker help. There's a section titled "Entering a formula for limiting access on a record-by-record basis" that gives you a detailed description of how to set this up.
