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 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).

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].
