That assumes that they do not have access to configure the ODBC on their
machine. If they do, they can just give themselves update authority or use
another tool. I think about the only way is with an exit program to prevent
attempts to connect with update. The real solution is to set up your
database so that all tables are locked to public except for read access and
have programs adopt authority to allow updates or comes through views to
provide access but almost nobody can do that.

How do you give someone read only capability when accessing the I series
via ODBC or transfer functions? We are still on 5.2 going to 5.4
