In order to change the Startup options of a database, do you need dbSecWriteDef permission, or is it sufficient to have dbSecDBAdmin permission?
In order to create/ change other database properties (including custom properties), do you need dbSecWriteDef permission, dbSecDBAdmin permission, or both?

I thought dbSecWriteDef  referred to modifying and deleting table defintions

u may need dbSecDBAdmin to do this. failing that there is always dbSecFullAccess

dbSecDBAdmin does provide you the ability to change settings in the Startup dialog (or through VBA); I'd assume that it also allows changes to user defined as well. From what I've been able to garner in the past, the only thing "higher' than dbSecDBAdim would be dbSecFullAccess, as rocki suggests.
