Only the selected user can able to edit the record..

Hi

Try using a validation rule - 
IF(ISCHANGED(<any field>), AND(($User.Id <>'<record id(s) of users>'), false)
The above ensures if record ids apart from mentioned user tries to change the record and save, error will be thrown.

Hi  Chandra Sekhar ,
Here the scenario is  i have one Object name Custom_object__C and it is having one field Sales_reps__c (lookup to User Standard Object).
After selecting the any user then saving the record, the only selected user can able to edit the record only..
Other users cant able to edit the record..
but here you are saying that to add users id.how we know the which user was selected..

Thanks in advance,
Anji

You mentioned 'Selected User'. Who will be those selected users (like only record owner/user from a specific profile) ? On what basis you are classifying them? 

Also, who are all will be considered as 'Other Users'? Can you please elaborate your request further.....
