Having not followed the complete thread I have these thoughts:
      This sounds like  situation for Authorization lists.  What you would
do is establish group profiles for each company.  Setup up Authorization
lists for the applications that you would want the company to access
containing the group profile.  Assign the users to the appropriate group.
      Now understand that if the data is in the same file, you would want
to establish logicals or coding (company code, etc) to limit cross data
access.  Multi member files are another way to do this, your CLPs can
retrieve the user profile information and decide from the user profile
information which OVRDBF to use.  This can get messy depending on how many
exceptions and customization you will need to make.
      Remember that any customization needs to be documented and a change
management process developed and maintained.  Due to the nature of
Authorization lists you would need to create a program that produces a
listing of all authorization lists with their contents.
      Hope this helps.
