We are moving a database from SQL Server 2000 to 2005.  The database seens to to restore OK, but when we run the web application we get numerous errors like "Username does not have select permission on tablename" or "execute permission denied on object storedprocedure1", etc. and we have to manually reset the permissions on every table, view and stored procedure.  How can we restore the database, including all permissions on tables, stored procedures, etc?

The users and their permissions *are* still there.  The problem is that the user is not sync'ed up with the login.

Run the code below in Query Analyzer and then run the commands it generates.  That should re-sync the users.

SELECT 'EXEC sp_change_users_login ''UPDATE_ONE'', ''' + su.name + ''', ''' + su.name + ''''
FROM sysusers su
LEFT OUTER JOIN master..syslogins sl ON su.sid = sl.sid
WHERE su.issqluser = 1 AND su.name NOT IN ('guest', 'INFORMATION_SCHEMA')
AND sl.sid IS NULL
