Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect Number
Enhancement Number
The user does not have any privileges to access SQL-92 objects.
1) Open the SQL Explorer and connect as 'sysprogress' (no password)
2) Grant DBA privilege to the desired user:


GRANT DBA TO 'user';
The drawback is that anybody can use this user account (or sysprogress) in order to delete/modify any SQL92 objects (tables, indexes, ...) or modify the SQL92 privileges (creating new DBA user with password).
