Restricting user view of select document types

We are attempting to restrict the ability of users to view transactional level detail within FI and CO for selected document types without impacting the totals on summary reports. While we have been successfully in restricting access to FI documents we have not been able to prevent users from seeing the detail within CO regardless of what cost object they are posted too. Is this possible to do? What have we missed? Thank you.

Since most of the ABAP around the transactional and the reporting authorize against the same authoriztion objects, I would assume that it would be significantly difficult to achieve this. But, if it is a must have... You may try writing a user exit into your cost summary reports that has an auth check against a custom auth object.. That will allow for the distintion between transactional and summary.
