.. when I choose certain items under a menu item which is specific for a privelege set it reverts back to the default menu
Can you describe that in more detail? I can think of more than one way that might be set up here and thus more than one way it might go wrong for you.
You shouldn't need duplicate layouts where the only difference is the custm menu set, BTW, there's a script step that can install a different menu set for each group of users by checking their Privilege set name.
Hi Phil, I'm using the script you metion to choose the custom menu based on the privelege set of the user, this appears to work fine, the issue seems to occur when I choose an option from the drop down of the finance menu it appears to revert to the default menu not the finance one.
Ok, this isn't working...

Yes but what exactly is happening at this point?
What option is being selected? Does it matter what option was selected?
Does it perform a script that your wrote? Is it a standard menu option?
Since you are using FileMaker Advanced, you may want to enable the script debugger and then select one of the menu options that is producing this result so that you can watch things unfold step by step to see if you can spot the culprit.
