Q. How are ODBC and Internal Database groups related?
How do I setup using groups with my ODBC database?

A. ODBC users and Internal Database Groups are not related at all!

If you are using ODBC and you want groups, then make groups a part of your database, and the use the custom select statement for each directory

Add a field to the usertable indicating the access priviledges for that users. This could be a hierarchical priority level ("A", "B", "C") or group membership ("Vendors", "Wholesalers", "Customers").

Then use the custom select statement on each directory you want to protect, setting the select statement to reflect the group, eg
Select Password from Users Where AccessLevel='Customers' AND user= etc.
