views and grants

Hi

I have existing view in oracle that I am altering and adding some columns - the existing view has grants in the script - after my alter view should I regrant the views or dont have to re-grant - how does that work?

As long as you create or replace view, existing grants remain in place.  No need to regrant permissions.

Thanks Slighwv - I do have create or replace statement - does that mean the replace will replace the grants are well?

No.  Replace only replaces that specific object.  Grants do not need 'replaced'.  The grants will remain as they are as long as the object is never dropped.
