I am setting up a test to allow columns of data to be encrypted using SQL Server 2005's native encryption.  I have been able to create the Database Master Key on my test database, the Certificate and the Symmetric Key.  Then I have attempted to open the Symmetric Key so I can use EncryptByKey to encrypt my data using the following commands in Management Studio logged in as a Windows Authenticated User:-

OPEN SYMMETRIC KEY PasswordFieldSymmetricKey
DECRYPTION BY CERTIFICATE PasswordFieldCertificate

and I get the following error:

Msg 15151, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot find the symmetric key 'PasswordFieldSymmetricKey', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.
