Hi.  I'm running OS400 V7R1 on an IBM Iseries system.  I've created a new user with minimal access.    User Class = *USER, Limit Capabilities = *YES & Special Authority = *NONE.   This user only needs to access a single object on my system via ODBC and I want to grant this user read only access to that object specifically.  Can this be accomplished by granting *USE authority for that single object?   thanks
