Open A Database To A Different Navigator For Users Based On An Acl Role.

Sometimes people in different groups or departments handle different functions
in a database. However, the database launch properties don't allow for much
flexibility. Here's how to easily open a database to a different navigator for
users based on an ACL role.
Enter a role for each user type. For example [DeptA];[DeptB];[DeptC]; etc...

Then, create a navigator for each role. Name it the same as the role.
[DeptA];[DeptB];[DeptC]; etc...

Finally, In the database script area, event postopen, put the following formula.

The database will open to the navigator corresponding to the role that the user
has. Obviously, this will work best when each user is only included in one
role. Multiple roles could possibly be handled with other variations of the
formula. @Contains for example.
