Excel VB.net Add-in Control which SQL tables users can see and edit

Hi

I have an Excel VB.net Add-in project that interacts with an Azure SQL database using a connection string.
I want to control which tables a user can see and edit.
What is the best way to do this. Should it be set up inside the Azure  SQL database per user name
and then a different connection string given to various people?

Thanks

yes, the setup of database access control should be done at database end (in your case Azure SQL Database)
and if you want to customize access for different users, then your connectionstring need to be changed as well to cater that requirement
