Can you change securities on files that are open?

Hello:

We are updating our securities and I'm wondering if this can be done while files are open?

We are really just trying to standardize the way we give people access to files. During the transition, a person would have access to files in two ways (via the old security settings and the new security settings). Then, we can go back and remove the old security settings. We were hoping to be able to do this without interupting people's work.

Is this possible?

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Magus

If you implement new security / access rules on folders, and users have the files open, in my experience they can keep the file open, but when they close it, then the new rules will take affect. If they still have access to the file then they should see no change. If you remove their access to that file, then they cannot reopen it.

Is that what you meant?

Thanks for the reply.

That's exacly what I'm talking about.

We've been fixing shares and securities for a while now. So far, we've managed to get the work done during the weekends without a hitch. The department we're working on this weekend works every day.

Thanks for the information.
