TNG V9 adds a button on the Reports page that when clicked will generate a comma separated value (CSV) report file. There are no options provided to control whether this button is available or not.

Purpose of Mod

This mod was created to remove the Comma-delimited CSV Report button except to those who have the Administrator privilege. Note that the administrator privilege is not limited only to the TNG Administrator, but includes those with Editor roles.

This mod was developed based on the email reply provided by Robert Collingwood on the tnguser2 list on how to suppress the button.
