That is looking like a collation conflict in a query and not a login.  

You can decide which collation you want as output and then cast every column and table from the "wrong" collation to the "right" collation.  (It's a pain but it's even more fun to rebuild the database with a new collation and then sort out the bugs from other queries' JOINs. ;-)

Isn't it an error prompted when viewing securables tab in login properties using SSMS?
This problem should be resolved in SSMS 2008 (SQL Server Management Studio).

That's not the only way to get one and, since the message references in the UNION operation, I am thinking it is a table collation issue.

I will admit that the message opens with a statement that seemingly contradicts the contents of the error message.

This is error message when I click security login securibles.
cannot resolve the collation conflict between "Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS" and SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS in the UNIION operation.  Error 468

i recreaed login, so far user can access the server but the securibles still has this error. I agree it is table and database collation changed. I have to
change the collation for each of them. It is painful to change one by one table and database.

Yes, but I don't know how to solve it from management studio.

It's a problem with different collations in master database and the database in which login is mapped as a db user.
You can check database collations by running:
EXEC sp_msforeachdb 'SELECT ''?'' AS [Database],DATABASEPROPERTYEX(''?'', ''Collation'') SQLCollation;'

I think you should change collactions so they can fit together.

Take care,
Daniel

Have it solved your problem?
As i wrote before, the problem lies in incompatible collations between master database and database in which login is mapped in.
Additionally it's not harmless to change master database collation - it implies rebuilding master db.
