Hi Experts,

I am trying to exucute the following command to grant execute privs for a procedure.

GRANT EXECUTE ON mydb.UPDATE_LINE_ITEMS TO 'myuser'@'%';

However, I get the following error:

ERROR 1144 (42000): Illegal GRANT/REVOKE command; please consult the manual to see which privileges can be used


What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Execute is not implemented until MySQL 5.0.3

After that version you should be able to do this:-

GRANT EXECUTE ON  function mydb.UPDATE_LINE_ITEMS TO 'myuser'@'%';
