How to lock BW 3.x Browser layout

Our query developers use 3.x bw browser to organize their endusers queries within the various roles. Recently for one particular sales role, somebody has rearranged the reports in a different order. I'm trying to determine if there is a profile or role that is allowing some users to make changes to the layout within bw browser? It seems some people are able to manipulate this and others can not but I'm having trouble determining what role or profile is responsible.

Thank you in advance for any insight you may have.

    you can try looking at the back end tables that store the information about the workbook. the link is below.

    while finding and opening the work book in the analyzer, on the top you can find the property of the WB and from there you can find the Last changed by or LAST modified by USER. i think you can find the culprit from there. 😊

      Thank you for your response. I experimented with your suggestion in mind and unfortunately I found that moving the workbook around in the browser, even moving it to an entirely different role had no affect on the LastChanged date or person responsible. It's almost as though the locations of these workbooks within BW browser are stored external from the actual workbook: ie: much like a LINKED reference to a file.
