Hi.
What is the syntax for creating a new USER (login?) that only has READONLY access to a single table.
For example how do I create a NEW user named  'BOB'  who ONLY has READONLY access to the Employee table in Northwind?
thx in advance

login is not the same as user ...
login is on server level, and the creation sql is documented:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189751.aspx

the user is the mapping of the login in a given database (means for each db in the instance, you would need to map the login again)
that syntax is also documented:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms173463.aspx

by default, the user can only read the database structure (table names etc), but no data.
to grant the "read only", you just grant the SELECT permission:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187965.aspx
USE Northwind
go
GRANT SELECT ON dbo.Employee TO BOBO
