Martin, On the client PC, go to ODBC Data Source Administrator and highlight the ODBC driver for Client Access. Press Configure. In Client Access Express ODBC setup, select the Server tab. There are radio buttons for Connection type that include a choice of: Read/Write (all SQL statements allowed) Read/Call (Select and Call statements allowed) Read-Only (Select statements only) Hope this helps Richard -----Original Message----- From: Bath, Martin [mailto:martin.bath@xxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, April 10, 2003 3:04 AM To: 'bpcs-l@xxxxxxxxxxxx' Subject: ODBC security and CEA Hi We are a BPCS v6.1.0 shop running on OS400 V4R5.
