Re: Methods for locking one field on a record/layout

We are considdering different methods for locking a single field on a record, either by calculation or by user or user group.
Any good ideas?
One method is to 'Validate by calculation', but I don't care for this method. If I don't have access to a filed then don't let me into the field. In the project I am working on nw I have two view of the 'data entry' layouts, and the user is naviagted to the proper one based off of user rights.
Another method involved using an intermediate interface file to collect and parse data.
Another method is to disable entry to fields, and then put a button in a disappearing portal to enter that field. If the portal is valid the button shows up, otherwise there is no option for entry.
