Object Level security with multiple roles

I added a few new columns to an Employee table.  I only want a certain role "HR Administrators" to see those fields.  It seems simple at first.   All I need to do is set the Object Level Security on those fields to "Read" for the HR Administrators role and set it to "None" for the Main role.   However, if a user is assigned to multiple roles, reports throw this error for that user "The combination of active roles results in a dynamic security configuration that is currently not supported."   So basically the user can't be in one role where he has None for a field and another where he has "Read".    This also happens when I try it at the table-level.    This seems like a major shortcoming.  I haven't been able to make any worthwhile use of object-level security for this reason.    I simply want a main role where all users reside and cannot see HR data, and another role where users can be added for these additional fields.   Is there a way to achieve this without making sure that users only belong to one role?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thank you for this information.  So it looks like basically what I need is not supported.   When implementing object level security a user must only belong to one role.   Unfortunately that makes it pretty worthless in my opinion.
