Hello. Please be more correct. Which sharepoint do you have? Have you tested also to add only user or only group? Which group? AD or SharePoint?
Please I need more info and after that I can test evrything. Thank you

It sounds like I'm having a similar problem so I'll add my configuration and observations here. I am using SharePoint 2010 Foundation. We have a table that has a number field that I want to set column permissions on. I set the New Form, Edit Form, and the Display Form/Views/Alerts to all be hidden for regular users. I have tried adding an AD group, a Sharepoint Group, and my name directly to the Hidden permissions for all 3 types of permissions. Interestingly, the column is hidden properly from the Views. However, the View Form and Edit forms still show the field. I can even change the number in the edit field and it is saved. I tried setting Read Only for the Edit form and I could still edit the number and save it. So, column permissions in views are working perfectly, but column permissions in forms are not. I should also note that I originally installed version 1.2, then 1.5, and now 1.6. Each time I did a Retract, Remove, and then Add and Deploy to upgrade. Let me know if you have any ideas on how to resolve this.

And thank you again for making this very useful SP Solution. The View Permissions alone has been invaluable for the project I'm working on. Getting the Column permissions working would be the icing on top.
