Dim xResults As Integer

'//if user is moveing from read mode to edit mode
If source.EditMode = False Then
xResults = False
xRoles = Evaluate(NotesMacro$)
xUserName = Evaluate(NotesMacro2$)
xAssigned = Evaluate(NotesMacro3$)

'// Check their roll access
If xRoles(0) <> "" Then ' No roles. No Edit
Forall xR In xRoles
If Instr ( Ucase(xRolls) ,Ucase(xR) ) > 0 Then
xresults = True
