You need to join the syspermissions table with the sysobjects table on syspermissions.id = sysobjects.id and sysobjects.xtype specifies the type of object.

For more information on types of objects, refer to : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177596.aspx

AFAIK, SQL server 2000 didn't have a concept of server level permissions. It was introduced starting with SQL server 2005. In fact MS recommends not using the backward compatibility views like syspermissions. sys.server_permissions should suffice if you are using SQL server 2005 or higher.

sorry.. actually I meant database_permissions.type, instead.

thanks. but we are after the permission type not the object.

for example, in sql 2005, it might be like:
select count(*) from sys.database_principals pr  JOIN sys.database_permissions
ON principal_id = grantee_principal_id where pr.type= 'in'

Thanks. Just to test, I ran the query on a sql 2005 database, and it brought back 0 records, but

select count(*) from sys.database_principals pr  JOIN sys.database_permissions ON principal_id = grantee_principal_id  brings back a few hundred records..

how would you interpret it?

The link might not have all permission types supported by SQL server 2005. What are the permission types that your select returns.

Try to work something along the lines of this:

select *
from syspermissions sp
join sysobjects so
on sp.id = so.id
join sysusers su
on sp.grantee = su.uid

select count(*) from sys.database_principals pr  JOIN sys.database_permissions pe
ON principal_id = grantee_principal_id brings 400, your query brings around 300.

are you able to identity anything close for sys.database_permissions.type?
