API Access - Allowing API Access without Codebase access

Is there a way to secure access to the Codebase (disallow view/edit) but still allow users to upload using the data loader?  I think the API Access checkbox controls access to both, right?

Do u mean, view/edit of apex/VF ?

yes.  i would like to determine whether I can grant certain users in our org DataLoader access but not allow them to see/edit source code

Ya you can do that. For hiding the view/edit of the setup, you can take away the "View Setup/Config" permission!

And you can still keep the API permission on the profile. Is that what your looking at?

that may work through the front end but does it keep the user from creating a project using the Force.com IDE?

In that case, you can check the "Author Apex" permission!
