Hi All,

I'm new to this and would like some help understanding how to set a user to
have only read only access.
I added an account and gave the account access to three databases.
Currently the only way they can get in, via a VB.NET program, is to belong
to the db_owner group. I would like to only allow read-only access but also
need to allow for stored procs to EXEC. Do I have to set each individual
attribute per database object?
