Accounts and Privelge settings

Mac OS X

FM Pro 9 on a shared server

 

I have been reading about Accounts and Priveleges, and have a couple of questions:

 

Ultimately, I want to give one employee access to one layout in one database -- I don't want her to see anything esle, or even have access to the data.  I am hoping to be able to create a layout that just includes buttons scripted to generate specific reports she needs.  Is this even possible -- from what I have read so far it seems like it should be, I am just not sure where to start because how I access Filemaker is not how I want her to access it -- she shouldn't see what I see, or be able to open any database other than one containing her layout of buttons...  is it possible to "hide" everything?

 

I currently access FM remotely, and choose the database I need to work in from a list of several choices.  The databases are not password protected, so I just click on the database and it opens.  I'm not sure how I go about password protecting the exisiting databases.  Can I do this, or does this need to be done on the server by the server manager?

 

I apologize that this seems a bit vague -- I am thinking this all through...  any suggestions, thoughts, or direction would be appreciated! :)
