  1. Quite good, I have a query – <BR/>We are using CAT2, and the requirement is – <BR/>Once a timesheet is approved, then the user should not be allowed to enter any more time. Can we put a check that user can release only one record for 1 day (I have already put a check that the total for a day should be atleast 8 hours before releasing/saving) – Rohit.gangwani@niit-tech.com
