Well, I just did (assuming the oracle4.gif file is current for that

Would be odd showing up in the user search, but other than that...

Ok. Thanks for the clarification, because I obviously didn't get that
from when I looked at the schema last time. There is a field *IN*
SCHEME named USERID. Personally, I would have thought this field
would be in USER from what you describe. IOW, that SCHEME would be
independant of USER rather than being connected to a single user. If
I may ask, why'd ya do it this way? And I'm not sure I see the
usefullness of PRIV here, other than to hide my horrid design skills
from you other members who would laugh your asses off at me. Not that
I'm trying to rekindle old discussions or anything. I'd just like to
