when is an owner not an owner
Posted on 2002-04-10
I've set up my 'non-sa' account as owner of a particular db (sql2k sp2). I was probably logged in as sa when I created the db using DTS from an existing db.
When I connect from my workstation using MSAccess2k via an odbc connection using the non-sa account i find that I don't have ability to create new records. If I connect as sa i can.
looking at EM's Users for that db my non-sa login has checks for 'public' and 'db_owner'. I didn't (don't) think any of the other roles are anything more than subsets of db_owner, yes? So why isn't being owner good enough for Access.
My primary concern here isn't so much connecting via Acess...the db exists only to give stuff to IIS/web pages. I'm wondering if this indicates other things that may bite my butt going forward.
