Here's another country heard from. What I have found out is that it is
easier for someone in I.T. to create a qry to give the users the info they
are needing. Because the biggest problem. Is trying to explain the logic of
extracting the data.Or the correct way to join two or more files, Or that
you need to use this file to get to this file for the data they
need....Easy, if it's a simple qry and not many record selections.
     But what I have discovered is if you create a qry, then go to
AMZM3E and create a task(option #3) and put that task on a menu(option #1).
Then the user adopts amapics authority and is allowed to run the qry. No
edit obj. aut. required. Especially if you have locked the command line
within Mapics.
    Then if you wanted to take this another step. You could then go to
Mapics security and add this task and then assign the users that are allowed
to use this..

Hope this helps
