  2. Managing Permissions:
    There are 4 object types supported by Database Schema Designer for Permissions.   They are: Functions, Stored Procedures, Tables and Views.   Use the drop-down list "Object Types" to choose which object type is displayed in the list below it.
    Permissions are applied to the Object Types as a group.   If you require Permissions on the individual Object level you must define those Permissions in the After Script of the Schema.
    With the exception of selecting the Object Type, this screen works in the same way as a Manage screen.   Click here to learn how to use a Manage Screen.

    You can GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE or EXECUTE Permissions using this screen.
    The Database User in which you are granting Permissions to is supplied by you and must already exist in the Database.
