Error: Cannot access a Page or part of a Page, or perform a function that you can perform in INB


Banner security is you are able to access a Page, a specific part of a Page, or perform a function in INB, then you will have the same access in Admin Banner. So if there is something you cannot perform in Admin Banner that you can perform in INB, then please try these steps before contacting Computer Services.

Example #1 - You get a blank screen or the page keeps "spinning" after typing in a Banner page into the Application Navigator screen.

Solution #1 - If you using Internet Explorer, log out, close the IE browser, and try in the recommended browsers Chrome or Firefox. IE is not recommended for Admin Banner

Solution #2 - If that doesn't work, clear your browser cache.

Example #2 - I can't get to the next section or enter text into a field.

Solution #1 - Use the Next Section arrows in the lower left corner of the page to navigate between sections.

Solution #2 - Some fields appear like they can't be typed into, but they can. Use the Tab key until the field is highlighted and try to enter the text again.

because Banner security is exactly the same regardless of whether the user is in INB or Admin Banner.
