Subject Re: [IB-Architect] Compile Time Triggers
Author Dalton Calford
How bout a view that can select from a stored procedure.
This would allow you to put whatever logic you wish into the stored procedure.
With the view triggers you can make the view updateable.
With extra global variables you can manipulate the view however you wish
(base it on time of day, role, user name, ip address etc)

From what I understand, this would be the easiest and most flexible approach.

You give each client access to the view, not the table.

best regards
