In a separate operation, a File Password can also be
set. This prevents unauthorized access with external tools such as
Microsoft® Access® for additional data security.
Permission-ECO Setup Utility
User permissions and Revision Control are part
of the data file. You might have an independent data file
(a personal project file, for example) that you do not secure.
And then, when you open your secured workgroup data
file, the permission features are activated. If you have the ECO edition,
you can open a file that has ECO features in effect. When ECO features are
installed into the data file, the EX and SE editions of P&V will not
open the file.
Your existing data file can be modified with the new
Permission-ECO Setup Utility. The file will then have one or more
"owners" who set permissions for other users in various
functional areas, including ECO Administration privileges (ECO Edition).
