proxy tables in SQL Server

Experts.. I am in the process of migrating an old Sybase database to SQL server 2005. In Sybase I have proxy tables that point to a different database table. How and is there a way to create proxy tables in SQL Server. If there is no such tables, what is the alternative solution?

in ms sql server you can have views that point to different database table.

create view proxytable as
select * from servername.dbname.dbo.tablename

Open in new window

It is called SQL Security and you could go very deep into details or use views where you could also grant speciffic rights to SQL logins and hide the actual data tables as mayank_joshi suggested.

You can go down to column level permissions like below so only users entitled to perform certain actions against your data can do it:

GRANT SELECT (<column1>, <Column2>,<Column3>) ON Employees TO [MyDOMAIN\user]

DENY SELECT <Column4> ON Employees TO [MyDOMAIN\user]
