Truncate table/create index permissions with dynamic sql

jkavx asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I need to be able to use dynamic sql to truncate tables and create indexes.  Two different stored procs are involved.  One simply does a truncate table, using dynamic sql and a table name parameter.  The other just creates an index on a column, using dynamic sql and an a table name parameter.  This is related to a batch process; there are a group of identical tables involved.

The problem is that once the stored proc uses dynamic sql, there is not sufficient permission to do the truncate or create index.  How do I assign permissions so that the batch process account can do the truncate and create index?
