    we can achieve that by doing few changes in the folder structure and by creating users groups.

    Create few folders in the public folders and Move your reports according to your requirement.

    Ex: keep your HR reports in HR folder and Finace reports in Finance folder.

    Later create few groups in CMC and include users as per your requirement

    Ex: BO-HR-USER,BO-FINANCE-USERS. Include the users in the respective groups.

    Later you can apply security on the folders with the ref of below document to restrcit the users to not to view other reports

    Basic Security Implementation and applying access rights on the Folders in SAP BusinessObjects environment.

      It is not possible the way you are talking. As mentioned by JRK you would have to set the security in such scenario at report level.i.e., set access for every report.

      It would be best to keep the reports in particular folder and a user group who have access to the specific reports only.
