Granting users in active domain permissions to execute a stored procedure from an excel workbook

Posted on 2015-01-21
Last Modified: 2015-02-18
I have created a workbook on a public drive accessible to about 5 users.  Within the workbook is a macro that runs a SQL 2008 R2 stored procedure to update a table within the workbook.  It works perfectly for my user access.  Currently these 5 users have read privileges to access views and tables within the SQL Server from Excel.

What are the procedures to set these users up to be able to execute the stored procedure?  I have seen a lot of different styles and advice on this matter.

Do I need to "alter" the SP grant them permissions?  Or do I need to get the DBA involved?

Let me know.

i suggest that you involve your dba in the solution,,,

basically to let him know that you are intending this extensions of access to the data,,, so that he can

properly assess the impact from a security and performance viewpoint that fits in with your companies security and audit policies.
