I have a navigation file that shows users how to go to related files by pressing a button that executes a script that takes them to a related file. I want to ammend the script to see first if they have access to any of the layouts in the file, and then, if not, abort the script and show them a message .

bd,

Thanks for the help, that worked fine for all of the enduser groups defined, but I have found one problem. And the question is as follows: When I logon with a password that allows access to the entire file, the script returns my message that I don't have access. How can this be?

The master password belongs to all groups. When you log in with the master password, a test for any group will return true. You should make a group to which only the master password belongs and test for this group first.

Have a look at the value returned by Status(CurrentGroups).

One of the calcs I use most often for this sort of thing is

PatternCount (Status(CurrentGroups), "<GroupName>") = 1

The 1 could be a 0, depending on whether you are checking to see if the user is in a group or isn't.
