Using sql server 7

I have a user x whoes login name is x
who has permissions of
public,db_owner,db_accessadmin,db_securityadmin

It seems that only the sa account can call the sp_addlogin,sp_adduser.

Is there anyway I can give permissions to my account x to do this

TIA

connect to your server with the account sa, and execute the following script:
USE MASTER
GRANT EXECUTE ON sp_addlogin TO x
GRANT EXECUTE ON sp_adduser TO x

I still get
User does not have permission to perform this action.
on sp_Addlogin
when I switch to another database and try and add users

only members of sysadmin and securityadmin roles can execute this so you would have to put your user in one of these groups.
That's the server role not the database role you have put it in the database role.
