Is there a way to grant insert and update permissions to a user in arccatalog without granting delete permissions also?

I am setting up a collector app for field workers and I don't want them to have the ability to delete anything, just to add or change features.  I noticed that there are separate boxes for Insert, Update, and Delete in the dialog where permissions are set, but the 3 boxes turn on or off simultaneously, without giving the administrator the ability to set them individually.  Is there any way around this?  It seems like with the 3 separate boxes you should be able to do this.

Hi Jeff,

As far my knowledge goes, Arccatalog does not have option to add privileges insert and update only without delete.  All 3 selected at the same time. The reason being, in versioning editing environment, when you update any feature, there will be a delete first and record inserted in D table and then add feature with updated information and inserted row in A table of that feature class.

Thanks,

Biraja

Thanks Biraja, that does make sense.  I was trying to put together a workflow that wouldn't allow delete, but I did see that I could only select the separate permissions when the dataset wasn't versioned.  I didn't think about the versioning schema when I started planning this
