Does anyone know if there is a way to restrict customers to a specific category?

In other words, is there a way to set up a customer group where only they can see a particular category (a group of products)?

I've personally not done this before, but according to the developer design guide it looks like you can use either the product's "Match Customer" field (customermatch), or the category's "Match Customer"
(matchcustomer) field.

Category's field is defined in the guide as:
Match Customer (matchcustomer)
Use only if you want VP-ASP to match same field in customer record

Product's field is defined in the guide as:

Match Customer (customermatch)

To restrict products to specific customers, this field matches the same field in the customer record

(I hope that little tip has helped redeem myself against those active-topics I just accidentally flooded the forum with when I was correcting my messages' url's!)
