Unable to access a formatted search

Hi Experts

As per advice from 'Mastering SQL for SAP Business One by Gordon Du' (great book BTW) I have by default set all authorisations to query wizard, generator and manager to 'no authorisation'. But my users cannot now access some cells in SOP that contain a formatted search.

How do I give them access to the formatted search but NOT the query wizard, generator and manager? I note in the book it advises that you set authorisation groups against query categories - Is this the BEST way to control access?

    Dear Advisors

    I have had an answer back from SAP via my VAR and found out the missing ingredient to allow users access to the formatted search queries embedded in forms. I'd already set the FMS query category to group 15 and set the user read only authorisation level 15 too, without success.

    The missing link was that besides allowing the above authorisations you also have to allow the user full authorisation to - 'Execute non-select SQL statement' which wasn't the case and hence the problem. See screen shot below: I hope you find this feed back useful and thank you for your help.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, it may not be possible to disable all users' access to query manager and FMS also work.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Hi Martin Lewis,

    Yes. Set authorizations under "Group" in query manager.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Thanks for your conformation Nagarajan. I've set up the Query/category authorisation groups to 'ALL (1-15) and set the users authorisation level to 15 so they now have access to formatted searches (I think) But they now get an error message concerning a table called OOAT. I'm not sure what this table or error is. Can you help?

    Thanks again

    I have now reverted to where I started and given full authorisation to query wizard/generator & manager and now --- the error does not happen anymore.

    Its not ideal, I know but at least we know its not the FMS and/or syntax but a User and/or authorisation issue.

    Does anyone know where I go from here or do I log it with SAP?
