Go into the Emerald Admin and UNcheck the "Use only global reports" in the
Client/Reports section (this option doesn't work correctly when
batch-printing). You should have a UNC path for the reports listed though.
Go into the Emerald directories on the client machines and remove *.rpt.
This will prevent those clients from overriding what you have in the UNC
path specified above.
Although there may be a way of restricting report-printing/viewing directly
within Emerald (??), you can also just modify the NTFS permissions for that
UNC path and restrict that one user (or group) from having read access.
