  • In your Database create a Database Role as:


    Double Click, Securables, Search, All Objects of the Types, Tables and set the tables that can be seen in that role. After that set the user giving him the role (that you have just created following the instruction above) permission. Do not forget to untick the usual permission as DboReader or DBWriter etc.

    Please mark as answer if this post helped you

  • You've written: "in those tables i need some specific tables to remove permissions for a user."

  • From the system view [INFORMATION_SCHEMA].[TABLES] to list your tables that you want to remove some permissions and use GRANT SELECT / INSERT / UPDATE /DELETE ON TableName to UserName.

  • That user is not a member of db_owner database role, right?

    SELECT 'DENY  ON ' + quotename( + '.' + 
                                  quotename( + ' TO  UserJoe'
    FROM   sys.objects o
    JOIN   sys.schemas s ON o.schema_id = s.schema_id
    WHERE  o.type = 'U'

  • Check below sample

    declare @tables table(tablename varchar(100))
    declare @table varchar(100)
    declare @query varchar(100)
    insert into @tables values('dbo.Calender')
    insert into @tables values('dbo.customer')
    insert into @tables values('')
    while exists (select * from @tables)
    select  top 1 @table = tablename from @tables
    set @query = 'DENY SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE ON ' +  @table + ' TO  [DOMAIN\User]'
    delete top (1) from @tables
