Whoops!! Forget my previous posting on this topic. Wrong focus of 
information!! If you follow SSA's suggested install model and have all users 
on AS/400 with Group Profile SSA, you are right - no matter how you set up 
SSA user profile, if users have Group Profile SSA and SSA owns the objects, 
there is no keeping them out of BPCS files if they have command line access. 
Beware - command line is not the only worry  -- ODBC is also a problem 
regardless of command line access on OS/400.
