I have a report running on Account. One of the users have access to the folder but not the report. The users profile has read, create, edit, viewall for account.

I am quite baffled as to what is causing this.

    Is this the standard Accounts report type? or is custom? Is the account the only object in that report type?

    could be silly suggestion, check if you saved the report in "My personal folder".

  • What differences are there between these users? Are they the same Profile and Role? Sep 19 '14 at 19:28

If You are using Custom Report Type for Report Make sure it is "Deployed"


The report is most likely accessing some information that the specified profile/user does not have access to, which raises the "insufficient privileges" error.

  • Check field level security for all fields that are referenced in the report.
    • Setup->Security Controls->Field Accessibility->Account->View by profile
  • Check that the user/profile has access to any other objects that are referenced in the report.
    • Setup->Manage Users->Profiles->[Profile]->Object Settings
