"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Assuming you have a query window open on the target database, and you're logged in with an account with sufficient privileges:

-- 1.  Create a database level role
create role [myRole] authorization dbo;

-- 2.  Assign "select" permission, for that role, to a specific view
grant select on dbo.viewname to [myRole]

-- 3.  Assign a specific user to that role
exec sp_addrolemember 'myRole', 'myUser'
