Please help me with this query.
I'm building a simple system that allows someone in my client's onganization to post files for certain users to download. In our case the best way for the administrator of the system to manage access to files is to have users, groups, documents and overrides. The point being that you create groups, add documents to groups, then add users to groups, then add or remove documents on a user by user basis.
So here are my tables:
I need to create a query that returns all documents a user has access to based on what group the user belongs to and taking into account that the document does NOT appear related to the user in documents_users with switch set to 0. Now, after getting that, add the files that DO appear related to the user in documents_users with switch set to 1.
Basically get documents for user based on group and add or remove documents to the users results based on documents_users.switch.
Please, please, please help!!! I'm loosing too much sleep over this!!!
