Cannot find the object "tst.TestMatrix" because it does not exist or you do not have permissions.

Hi, I got a strange error with an Sql Server stored procedure, it worked ok for almost 1 year, and now, without any change:

The SP is compiled successfully, execution permissions ok, but at run time the following error is displayed:
"Cannot find the object "tst.TestMatrix" because it does not exist or you do not have permissions."

I have checked, the table exists, the only difference is that its schema bound dependency with this SP, compared to the other tables this SP refers to, but don't know if this is the error source.

Below the SP code:

USE [mdlzprd]
GO

/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix]    Script Date: 11/21/2013 10:40:43 PM ******/
DROP PROCEDURE [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix]
GO

/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix]    Script Date: 11/21/2013 10:40:43 PM ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO

SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO



CREATE PROCEDURE [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix]
	-- Add the parameters for the stored procedure here
	@TestId int,
	@TestMatrix TestMatrixType READONLY,
	@RowsInserted int OUT
AS
BEGIN 
	-- SET NOCOUNT ON added to prevent extra result sets from
	-- interfering with SELECT statements.
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

    -- Insert statements for procedure here
	
	DELETE FROM tst.TestMatrix
	WHERE TestId=@TestId

	DECLARE @Groups TABLE
	(
		GroupId int,
		Group1 varchar(255),
		Group2 varchar(255),
		Group3 varchar(255)
	)

	INSERT INTO @Groups
	SELECT
		g.GroupId,
		g1.GroupDesc,
		g2.GroupDesc,
		g3.GroupDesc
	FROM 
		tst.TestQuestionGroups g
		INNER JOIN tst.TestQuestionGroup1 g1 ON g.GroupId1=g1.GroupId
		INNER JOIN tst.TestQuestionGroup2 g2 ON g.GroupId2=g2.GroupId
		INNER JOIN tst.TestQuestionGroup3 g3 ON g.GroupId3=g3.GroupId
	WHERE
		g.TestId=@TestId
		AND g1.TestId=@TestId
		AND g2.TestId=@TestId
		AND g3.TestId=@TestId

	DECLARE @InsertTable TABLE
	(
		TestId int,
		PositionId int,
		GroupId int,
		Level tinyint
	)
	
	--INSERT INTO [tst].[TestMatrix]
	INSERT INTO @InsertTable
	(
		TestId,
		PositionId,
		GroupId,
		Level
	)
	SELECT
		@TestId,
		p.PositionId,
		g.GroupId,
		t.Level
	FROM 
		@TestMatrix t
		INNER JOIN usr.Positions p ON LOWER(RTRIM(t.PositionName))=LOWER(RTRIM(p.PositionName))
		INNER JOIN @Groups g ON 
			(
			LOWER(RTRIM(t.Group1))=LOWER(RTRIM(g.Group1))
				AND LOWER(RTRIM(t.Group2))=LOWER(RTRIM(g.Group2))
				AND LOWER(RTRIM(t.Group3))=LOWER(RTRIM(g.Group3))
			)

	SELECT @RowsInserted=COUNT(*)
	FROM @InsertTable

	INSERT INTO tst.TestMatrix
	(
		TestId,
		PositionId,
		GroupId,
		Level
	)
	SELECT
		TestId,
		PositionId,
		GroupId,
		Level
	FROM 
		@InsertTable

	ALTER INDEX [idx_PositionId] ON tst.TestMatrix REBUILD
	ALTER INDEX [idx_TestId] ON tst.TestMatrix REBUILD

END

GRANT EXECUTE ON [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix] TO mdlzgenuser
GO

Seems someone changed the permissions, make sure that the user with which you run the sp has enough permissions; could be someone accidently run the 'DENY DELETE' for that table

I have attached the current permissions from testing environment, which is identical with production environment (except for data). The picture is the same for production.SP properties

there are no explicit permissions, as for the other tables:
TestMatrix

>there are no explicit permissions, as for the other tables:
 there shouldn't be;
can you specify explicit DELETE for the sql user on this table, just to test;

Dumb question, but have you run a DBCC CHECKDB to make sure there is no corruption.

Also, what do the schema permissions look like?

CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 0 consistency errors in database 'mdlzprd'.
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.

No explicit permissions defined for schema tst

try this way

use mdlzprd
go

EXECUTE AS USER = 'mdlzgenuser';
delete from tst.TestMatrix
where testid=1000
Revert;

also try to execute the sp in the same way using EXECUTE AS an revert and let us know which line you are getting the error

if this is run as part of the sql server agent , make sure that the source database is mdlzprd , otherwise use a 'use mdlzprd'  before executing the sp

the stored procedure is called from C# code, not executed as such in SSMS

I need an explanation of why this table is not recognized as a database object, despite that it exists in DB and there is no obvious security issue

Either this is a permission issue or the application is looking at a different database.

The application cannot look at different database, since the method called in C# is running 4 different stored procedures (3 of them are running ok), and the only connection string is that from web.config.

What is also strange is that if executing the stored procedure under mdlzgenuser, it runs ok under admin user, but not mdlzgenuser, so this is pointing me to a permission issue for the latter. Where should I look for?

USE [mdlzprd]
GO

DECLARE	@return_value int,
		@RowsInserted int

EXEC	@return_value = [tst].[prcSetTestMatrix]
		@TestId = 1111,
		@RowsInserted = @RowsInserted OUTPUT

SELECT	@RowsInserted as N'@RowsInserted'

SELECT	'Return Value' = @return_value

GO


Msg 1088, Level 16, State 9, Procedure prcSetTestMatrix, Line 94
Cannot find the object "tst.TestMatrix" because it does not exist or you do not have permissions.

Finally solved by granting "Control" permissions to mdlzgenuser to tst.TestMatrix, but this is not an elegant solution.
And still dont understand why it happend, and for other tables and stored procedure there is no need to do this....

I think the user doent have the permission to REINDEX. You can test it commenting out those two statements in your sp

Tested and indeed this was the root cause. Thanks! :)

I should have asked you the line number where you were getting that error  before : )

I had no specific line number. The error was displayed in browser and is the exception message detail as part of a C# try catch finally block.
