Hi all,

I am having issues trying to create a new login user and allow it admin priviledges to a specific DB.

I have create the new login with the db_owner as the default schema.

I have then added the user to the specific database -> under user mapping the db I want it to have access to is ticked and it has all the priviledges next to it for the db_owne checked.

However when I try and access through SQL Express interface i get the following error;

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express

Failed to retrieve data for this request. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Express.SmoEnum)

No the database is different. I'm not sure why this is appearing when I try to browse the tables in the db

That's why I asked. What's the default database for the login that you created?
