Prevent editing / deleting Data

Postby Bas_Vogel » Tue Nov 03, 2009 4:53 pm

Hi There,

I was asked to arrange a searchable database on a WinMob phone for a group of inspectors who needed the meaning of Error Codes. I trasferred the Access DB to a flat table and the HanDBase offered a quick solution to transfer the Data to the phone and make it searchable on ErrorCode.

Thing now is: no additions, editing nor deletions will be done on the phone. They better not for then their data will be lost.

In short: is there a method / setting to prevent the editing / deletion of data within a HanDBase database?

Thanks, Bas

Hi there,

Indeed there is! Go to the DB properties for the database you want to 'lock down'. Choose the security section. In the Access Permissions you'll see various operations like add records, delete records, etc. You can modify these as needed and it should yield the result you want. One thing to note- don't set DB PRoperties to no access unless you're absolutely sure you'll never need to change a property again! Otherwise, you won't be able to get in. Instead put a password on the database and set it to 'password required' so that only those who know the password can get in.

Hope this helps.
