From my painful experience I would suggest that Domino Security does apply to
this. I was working on producing an Excel spreadsheet from a log view so
Tutors (it's an educational application) could see who has been contributing
However, to save time, I was working on a local copy and wondering why nothing
was appearing in Excel when the debugger showed it working fine.
After many hours, it suddenly dawned that the log form is controlled by Reader
fields (to allow student to see a list of documents they have read, whilst
Tutors see the whole picture). Of course, when testing offline (ie not logged
in) it was returning no records in the browser (of course the debugger was fine
in the client).
Anyway, despite my own, self-inflicted problem, this is a great tool. As Jake
said, we can now give end users the data in a format they are familar with and
let them analyse it at will (and stop bugging us!).
