Thanks. Good pointers. After selecting the database, I issued the command

GRANT select ON [thedbname] TO [theusername]@[myIPaddress]

Here's what it gets me: ERROR 1142: grant command denied to user:

I assume the ISP has MySQL pretty much locked down. Does that look like an

Thanks yet once more.
