Returns the name of the privilege set being used to evaluate this calculation in the file.





Data type returned 


Originated in 

FileMaker Pro 6.0 or earlier


If a user is using the default Admin account and you haven’t modified access privileges for the file, this function returns [Full Access].


If you specify the context for the current calculation, this function will be evaluated based on that context; otherwise, it will be evaluated based on the context of the current window.

If this function is evaluated in a script that is set to run with full access privileges, Get(CurrentPrivilegeSetName) returns [Full Access].

For a user with Read-Only Access to a database who is running a script that is set to run with full access privileges, Get(AccountPrivilegeSetName)returns [Read-Only Access] but Get(CurrentPrivilegeSetName)returns [Full Access] (for the current script).

See also Get(AccountPrivilegeSetName) function.

Example 1 

For current user Administrator, Get(CurrentPrivilegeSetName) might return [Full Access].

Example 2 

For a current user in the sales department, Get(CurrentPrivilegeSetName) might return [Data Entry Only].
