protect attachments from being deleted

Discussion in 'Lotus Notes Programming' started by Thomas.Arnold, Jun 26, 2003.

  1. Dear NG,

    how can I protect attachments in a richt text field form being deleted by
    the users and replaced by new ones? Is there a way, maybe by a controlled
    access section?

    Lotus Notes 5 (the attachments still need to be replaced by my agent)

    Thanx

    Do your users need to be able to edit any other fields on the
    document? If they don't, you could use a Readers field.

  3. Hi Thomas,

    only ideas:
    1) calculated rt-field => field not editable
    2) load in PostOpen some info about the (original) attachment and compare in
    QuerySave these info to the info read from the actual attachment and stop
    saving.
    3) do not allow the edit mode of the form. Provide an additional form in a
    dialogbox to edit fields.

    (I think you mean an Authors field) :)

    You *could* put the attachment in a document to which users only have
    reader access, then put a doclink (or url, if it's web-based) to that
    document in the main one: this will give them access to the data, but
    no ability to delete.

    Ooop, thanks for correcting me Thom. I was working on something
    involving a Readers field at the time and it must have overtaken my
    brain a bit!

    I'm just doing something w/ Authors fields, so that's the only reason I
    was so focused on it. : )
