Purpose of Program

There are two parts to the Advanced Accounting security system.  These are a user file that contains logon codes and passwords for all users as appropriate.  The other is a file that contains permissions.  By combining this with FL-K - Maintain Menu Access Records, you can control the programs a user has access to and whether or not they can save or delete records in each of those programs.
