    Default Encryption

    Well, I finally got some time to study version 5. And I am hands down thoroughly impressed.

    The encryption is fabulous.

    Questions:
    Where I have groups, like

    me/administrator
    supervisors
    operators

    and I want to assign privileges to the users based on their groups that i might use for certain forms and/or tables, how would i approach this

    i know with a_holiday, i can add fields with no negative effects as far as alpha still being able to use the file.

    also, i recall reading that we now have the ability to "log," automatically. But I can't find any info regarding same anywhere. Could be because I am searching on the word "log"

    Perhaps you're thinking of audit trail?

    yes - that was the problem
    however, I was experimenting and added the suggested codes at both the cansave and candelete record events for a table, but the code wouldn't stay put - after I save the field rules and then look again, the code is gone - maybe because i don't have thos "addins" installed?

    Well, lo and behold, I went for breakfast, and, as I have of late, took my copy of Dr. Wayne's book with me. And it almost fell open to an entire chapter regarding An Audit Trail!

    Although, for some reason, the line

    addin.run("audit_trail")

    will not save in field rules. Note though that bubble help displays as I am entering the line. Beats me.

    well, phooie, Object Permissions does not show up under Tools-Security.

    I have set up 2 groups with several users. I have encrypted 3 tables.

    But
    addin.run(....... won't work and
    Define Object Permissions missing from menu

    can someone verify that these features exist on their system.

    I have 1381-1024, and this is the first time I have even checked for these features or implemented any of the security features
