      Description of the issue

      I'm trying to set up a priviege set so users that login with a certain password are only able to view certain records.
      I'm using File/Manage/Secuity/Privilege Sets/New
      On the Records area I'm choosing Custom Privileges/Limited
      I then get to the "Specify Calculation" screen.
      I choose the field I want to use. My calcultaion is Company= abc So only records with abc in the company field will be able to be viewed by this particular user.
      However when I enter that calculation I get the error message
      "The specified field cannot be found"

      Any ideas what calcultion I should be using?

      I'm using File/Manage/Secuity/Privilege Sets/New

      However when I enter that calculation I get the error message
      "The specified field cannot be found"

          Company = "abc"

          You may want to consider an expression that doesn't explicity list the company name. If the company changes their name, you'll have to update your security settings to match. If you can refer to a field where the company name is stored, then you can simply update the data in your database without also having to update your security settings.
