WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION Declaration

In a multiuser environment with a security-enabled workgroup, use this declaration with a query to give the user who runs the query the same permissions as the query's owner.

Syntax

sqlstatement
WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION

Remarks

The WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION declaration is optional.

The following example enables the user to view salary information (even if the user does not otherwise have permission to view the Payroll table), provided that the query's owner does have that permission:

SELECT LastName, FirstName, Salary
FROM Employees
ORDER BY LastName
WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION;

If a user is otherwise prevented from creating or adding to a table, you can use WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION to enable the user to run a make-table or append query.

If you want to enforce workgroup security settings and users' permissions, do not include the WITH OWNERACCESS OPTION declaration.

This option requires you to have access to the System.mdw file associated with the database. It is useful only in security-enabled multiuser implementations.
