Hello All,

Is it possible to add a user to a SQL Server database using Transact SQL, instead of Enterprise Manager?  If so, can you give me an example?

Thanks!

The following will add a new user, and add them to the db_owner role for the current database

for further parameters look at the help for the 3 stored procs

sp_addlogin @loginame = 'newuser', @passwd = 'newpass'
sp_grantdbaccess 'newuser'
sp_addrolemember 'db_owner', 'newuser'
