Drop Down List and Groups

My question is.

Is it possible to limit one selection in a drop down box, so that only a specific group can use it.

I have it working if the user logged in belongs to 1 group. But because we have users belonging to multiple groups it fails and will not work.

Thanks for your repsonses in advance

RE: Drop Down List and Groups

Yes it is, depending on how your drop down menu is populated. For example, if it is a Query based menu, populating the drop down based on data in another form, you can add field ID 112 (Assignee Group) to the form that is the source of your data. Then you can limit what group gets access to each row in the table by Assignee Group, merely by putting the group you wish to allow in that field.

Version 6 allows multiple groups to be defined in the assignee group field, while earlier versions allow only a single group.
