Hi,

Is anyway that a dataset can be creted as a browse only dataset, eventhough it has minimum number of records or it occupies less memory??

I want to create a dataset and I dont want it to edited by anyone...

Thanks,
Janani

1) Please DO NOT tag your question onto an existing topic. Start a new one
2) Speak to your security people who may protect the dataset as requested.

Hello,

There will always be someone else who can edit your dataset.

Suggest in addition to having the security people make it read only, you also make a copy any time you change it. . .
