Resolution

Use the following command to list the Database Authorization Table:

select * from sysprogress.sysdbauth

 
GRANTEE                          DBA_ACC  RES_ACC
-------------------------------- -------  -------
administrator                       
y        y
SYSPROGRESS                         y        y

The administrator user name corresponds to the user who created the database.
The SYSPROGRESS account is used internally by the SQL engine.
The column DBA_ACC corresponds to the DBA access that a user can have and
RES_ACC corresponds to the resource access, that is, permission to create objects in the database.

If a DBA user is revoked from any of these permissions, the user name remains in the sysprogress.sysdbauth  table, however, the permission is displayed as blank.
 
Workaround
Notes
This query cannot be performed within ABL as the SYSPROGRESS schema is not visible to the ABL.
Only the PUB schema is visible within the ABL, therefore the select statement listed in the resolution must be performed by an ODBC or JDBC connected SQL 92 client.
