1) We have db2 7.2 on AIX 5.1 and windows NT 4/2000.

2) We have many tables created in a schema logged in as a particular user.

3) What is the process to enable revoke of drop table for these already created tables.

4) Do we have to do any OS level settings.

When I grant create table and createin I am able to create a table. Then although dropin is revoked I am able to drop the table if I am connected with same user with which I created the table.

How can I prevent dropping of tables connected as a user with whom I created the tables originally. Is this a bug in DB2 or a RDBMS standard.

this is the standard, the user who created the table has control over the table. If you try and revoke the control privlidge from the user who 'owns' the table, you will get SQL0555N, An authorization ID cannot revoke a privilege from itself.
