That's not enough either

The design of this database is hidden (for example) but if you access it via the Notes client it's not hard to find out the fieldnames and values thru a toolbar button or other code. For instance, here's a toolbar button formula:

_names := @DocFields;
_values := @Transform(_names; "x"; x + ": " + @Left(@Implode(@Text(@GetField(x)); ","); 70));
@Prompt([OkCancelList]; "Fields in this document"; ""; ""; _values)

And here's the output:

There are only two ways to securely keep a field value secret: encrypt the field, or store it elsewhere, not in the document, in a place to which the user you want to hide it from has no access. If it's in another Notes document, you can pull it in by @DbLookup, for instance.
