Permission levels for Columns

  Asked By: Mark    Date: Aug 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 782

I know you can create permission levels to see a particular list, and a
item in that list (a row). But, can SharePoint V3.0 with MOSS 2007
installed allow you to create a Column permission level?

What I want to do is create a database, and include many columns that
will be shared by most users, except the one labled "Salaries" -
Naturally I wouln't want employees to hang me on the highest yard arm
when they saw I was paying the Janitor more than the IT guy, now would
I? Just kidding, but It points out a strong need for being able to set
permission levels for columns so the column marked Salaries, is seen
only by the HR department, but all the other columns can be seen by
everyone else.

There are several ways to do this, but none that are provided

Probably the best way to do what you want would be to create  a Custom
Field Type. With a custom field type you have complete control over
what and how the column  is displayed. If you add the security trimming
there you could prevent people from seeing it.

Are you referring to writing code to create  this Custom Field Type or are you
referring to simply adding a UDF column  using the interface? If the latter, how
would you go about security trimming it? Perhaps I'm missing something here, so
I just want to be sure.

Writing code to create  a new Field Type class with supporting XML and
UserControl template to control the display.
