How do you refer to values that are not one word in Section Access

Dear all,

In a section access module where you have:

 

Access,  UserID,  Password,  CostCentre

USER,  USER,  USER,  *

ADMIN,  ADMIN,  ADMIN,  *

USER,  JOHN,  JOHN,  London

USER,  MARY,  MARY,  New York

USER,  PETER,  PETER,  London

ADMIN,  SIMON,  SIMON,  Paris

What would happen if the Cost Center was not a single word or a letter such as New York.  How do I refer to that?

Regards,

Aksel

Yes you can have spaces in your values, but it's recommended that you use Upper case for your field on the Denton Access.

"All field names used [...] above and all field values in these fields must be upper case, because all field names and field values are, by default, converted to upper case in section access." — Managing security with section access

I am just adding the link to QlikView Help on Section Access/Security instead of Sense, so as to not confuse anyone that reviews this in the future.
