is it possible in general ledger (COA)to hide some account for some persons or for some group of person in AX 2009
You can use Record Level Security in your case. see blow link,
Next to the record level security (RLS), you can also use validation of users on the ledger accounts for preventing posting toward these accounts.
With RLS you can filter data, but it will not prevent users from typing the accounts manually in journals.

you have mentioned that RLS will not prevent users from typing the accounts manually in journals. Then what would be the best solution ?
As mentioned in my reply, you can setup a validation on the ledger accounts. It is possible to create a list of users allowed to use the accoutn per ledger account.
Hi Andree ,
You mentioned that we can setup a validation on the ledger accounts. Could you explain bit more about how to setup validation ?
Thanks in advance.
On the details form of your chart of accounts there is a tab page called 'Setup'. The field group User contains two fields:
- User ID
- Validate user
The field validate user can be setup for having the following results:
- Optional ( all values also blank are allowed)
- To be filled in (the field is mandatory, but alll users are valid)
- Table (Only the value specified in the field 'user ID' is allowed.
- List (Multiple users are allowed to post on this ledger account. Specifiy the users by clicking the button Validation List, User)
On the main account form fasttab 'Setup' can you find the user validation fields. On this tab you also have the menu button for the validation list.
