Read Only Access




I have a multi-user database where I need to create one user group that is
read only. I thought it would be straight forward, but for some reason it
isn't working. What I have is a search form where they search for a patient,
once they select a patient a patient form pops up with that patient record.
Within the patient form I have a subform which contains the fields which
read/write users will do their editing in. For some reason when I make that
subform's table read only, it doesn't show up when a search is done by the
read only user. They need to see that subform, just not make changes to it.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Does the read-only group have open permission on the subform? Is there a
lookup field in the recordsource of the subform (they'll need read
permission on the lookup table as well)
