GRANT EXECUTE for stored procedure - where do I put it?

Hello,

I am trying to execute a stored procedure from a VB6 application - get an error message telling me thta execute permission is denied.

Have read elsewhere on this site that I need to grant the user EXECUTE permission using a statement

GRANT EXECUTE ON <<stored procedure name>> TO <<username>>

Do I put this statement in the stored procedure itself or does it have to go elsewhere.

----- stored procedure --------

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.sp_FreeIssueParts
AS
      exec master..xp_cmdshell 'DTSRun /S (local) /U sa /P mbl1175 /N dtsFreeIssue', NO_OUTPUT
GO


------ connection from application -------

        Set dbBookIn = New Connection
        dbBookIn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
        dbBookIn.Open "PROVIDER=MSDASQL;dsn=SCLAnodising;uid=anodising;pwd=bugger;database=SCLAnodising;"
        dbBookIn.Execute "sp_FreeIssueParts"



I believe the staement I need is:

GRANT EXECUTE ON [dbo].[sp_FreeIssueParts] TO anodising

- but where does it go?

Thank You

you have to run that statement (once) apart from the procedure by a user that has the permissions to grant the permissions (usually the owner of the procedure)

note however that the permissions missing might be the one of the xp_cmdshell, which might be missing to the owner of the procedure.

if that is the case, the use SA for example will need to ensure the owner of the procedure (dbo) has indeed the permissions to run the xp_cmdshell procedure...

Where / How do I do this?

GRANT permissions depend on the statement permissions being granted and the object involved in the permissions. The members of the sysadmin role can grant any permissions in any database. Object owners can grant permissions for the objects they own. Members of the db_owner or db_securityadmin roles can grant any permissions on any statement or object in their database

The focus for this has changed slightly - I added the user 'anodising' to the Master database and set Execute permissions for anodising in the properties for xp..cmdshell

Now when I run the application I get the message:

Run-time error '-2147467529 (80004005)':
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]xp_cmdshell failed to execute because current security context is not sysadmin and proxy account is not setup correctly.

I'm sure it is quite apparent that I don't really know what I am doing - can someone explain to me as if talking to a child how to get this stored procedure to run

Many thanks for any help you can provide
