One thing to be cautious about.... if your users are AMAPICS in their profile, and run ODBC to the AS/400, they can 'own' darn near any file with excel/access/query. Most users aren't that savy, but they often surprise you!

What works for me is: - programs adopt AMAPICS authority - AMAPICS has *ALL authority to all files - query/download access to files controlled by authorization lists assigned to files (most files' aut lists specify *PUBLIC *READ - this would be different if non-employees could possibly access machine, i.e. Internet connection) - users belong to group profiles, primarily to control access to user-created queries (queries "owned by" department, not individual) - personal menus (we actually figured out how to use personal menu support to enable executing MAPICS options from a third-party menu system, Softmenu from SoftLanding Systems - much easier to manage than MAPICS personal menus/group jobs) Dave Shaw MAPICS-L Moderator Spartan International, Inc.
