Take a look at the record level access privileges in FMP 5.5. it was designed especially for this purpose.

You said "I create user ids and passwords for two different users."


With FMP you can only create passwords -- I mean real passwords through the file's Access Privileges options.

If you mean "I have created my own log-in system" then that's different: OAM's comment "Depends on what you have actually done and how you have done it" is quite valid.

How have you created the userid? How to people "log-in" to the database?

In FM5 I created Passwords and associated them to Groups. When I Use FM Unlimited, I select the database and then I'm presented with a window that prompts me for a user name and a password. I enter the Group name as the id and its associated password.

Can i capture that name? I am sorry I called user id before.

Well, let's see. What information do I need to provite before I get some direction? Is there a place where FM provides solutions or information about this subject? Basically I have a database where certain records needs to be edited by different people. Instead of having fifteen small databases I'd rather create one database and subset it based on the user id.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
