experts,

i have a SQL job queries a database and exports a text file to a specific location. i need to run the jobs under a specific account, so that it has permissions to write to the directory where I'm trying to copy to. This seems like it should be simple, but I can't seem to find a way. on my jop steps, i have a "run as" option, but I can't figure out how to create an account with the needed credentials to populate this drop down.

thanks in advance.

you can set that in the job step.

get job properties, step , advanced and the set "run as user" value.

check this link http://blogs.msdn.com/b/varun_sharma/archive/2007/08/30/how-to-run-sql-server-agent-and-sql-server-jobs-with-least-privilege-in-sql-server-2005.aspx

i don't see a "run as user" value on the advanced tab. I see one on the general tab. looks like creating a proxy may be the way to do this?? not 100% sure though.
