Allowing for read only access?

Hi,

I wrote an AP Application that did not address read-only access - I now need to allow a user the ability to search certain tables for a given record (an invoice or check record) and if found allow them to look at it and print it (an option);I currently have a different sub-system that is handling these read only requests - once the user enters the find key and the find is valid the script goes into "PREVIEW MODE" and calls a new layout - with in this layout I have two buttons - one calling a script to return to the previous screen and one to print it. The BUTTONS are not working - I'm thinking it has to do with being in PREVIEW Mode? My goal is to allow access to these users and not allowing them to change any data.

Hi Jimmy,

I'm not sure I'm fully understanding you, but I toss this out and see what you think.

As you know, the Priview Mode very useful except to view a print.

Have you considered a layout where you use Calculation fields that equal your original fields. The user can then search, and scroll the fields, but they can not modify them.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for the idea - I will give to a try - what I hoping for - that I could open the table in a read mode (preview) and have the ability to run scripts.

Take Care,

Take a look at the file:

It is about midway down the page under the heading:
