    I have a database that has a switchboard, and i'm trying to limit who can
    access a particular item. How can I do this?

    If you used the built-in switchboard manager it would be difficult.

    BUT, the bigger point here is that not letting someone click a button on a
    menu has nothing to do with the user getting to the form, report, query, or
    table. Just because you come up with some way to issue an error when they
    click a button, does not mean they can't just open the table, or the form,
    or the query. Or, build their own.

    In order to secure your database, you need to implement user-level security
    and assign permission to the objects.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
