User Interface

Hello,  I am using enterprise guide in a unix and oracle environment.  I would like to build a user interface for someone to update specific records, they should have limited choices within those fields.  One user will have access to SAS the other will not.  Is this possible within EG?  If not what applications will I need?  The UI will need to communicate back to SAS, is this a job for ODS?  If you can provide any guidance or a place to find literature on the topic I will appreciate that.

Thank You,

Mark

Can't see that there an easy way to give your user an customized view for updating.

Can you please specify what these limited options are?

You can give the user the possibility to use the ordinary table view, and to limit the users rights...Maybe Oracle User rights, metadata rights in SAS, or a combination...?

I was thinking of drop down boxes with a limited number of options to choose from.

I don't think this is a very good application for Enterprise Guide. The only way I can see you doing this is to develop a custom task for EG, which is quite a job.

I think you might be better off using the Oracle tools to develop an interactive application to meet this requirement.

Tom, I'm currently going between excel/csv, unix and oracle and it seems to work fine.  I wanted to double check with this forum to see if there was anything I am not familiar with to keep everything in SAS.

Thanks!
