To set account permissions.

2. Open the Account Permissions form in the G/L Accounts folder.


3. Select the User ID for which you want to set permissions:

  • If you have already added the User IDs to G/L Security, you can browse through the list of User IDs using the Previous and Next buttons or you can click the Finder button and choose a User ID.
  • If you have not added the User ID for which you want to set permissions, click the Zoom button as shown below to display all Sage Accpac User IDs, and then select the User ID from the Finder that appears.

4. Use the Segment tab to specify ranges of department or division segment codes to allow or restrict access to department or division accounts:
  a) Click in the first row of the Allow column, then use the Spacebar or double-click to switch between No and Yes. If you are adding a line, press the insert key.
  b) Tab to or click in the Segment column, and then click the dropdown list that appears. For example, you could select the Division account segment to restrict account access based on the company's divisions.
  c) Tab to the From column and click the Finder button that appears (or click the Finder in the column heading). Select the first segment code in the range that you want to allow or restrict.
  d) Tab to the To column and select the last code in the segment range.
