Hi,

Here's my problem - I want our normal SQL users, called 'WebUser' to be able to view a view called 'sjView'...However, the table(s) this view is made up of is not accessible by WebUser, hence causing a permissions error when trying to look at it. I tried to give the view SELECT permissions etc to WebUser, but this didn't work - It just allowed me to view the view code etc.

Overall, what I want is WebUser to be able to view the sjView table, but not the tables it derives from.


How is this possible?

Thanks,
Cormac Redmond

GRANT SELECT ON sjView TO WebUser did not work?

This works for me
DENY SELECT ON [Table_Name] TO [Webuser] CASCADE 
GRANT SELECT ON [sjView] TO [Test]
When logging in as WebUser, SELECT * FROM Table_Name throws an error, but SELECT * FROM sjView workd great!

Thanks, that worked nicely!
I never did GRANT SELECT ON [sjView] TO [Webuser], but I did give sjView SELECT permissions to Webuser from Enterprise Manager, which I presumed would do the same thing. What's the difference?
