Revoke database_wide privileges, either system administration (DBA), or general creation (RESOURCE), or both.

Revoke various privileges on specific tables and views.

This is syntax to REVOKE system administration privileges (DBA) or general creation privileges (RESOURCE), or both:

REVOKE { RESOURCE , DBA } FROM { username [ , username ] , ... } ;

Revokes from the specified users the privilege to issue CREATE statements.

Revokes from the specified users the privilege to create, access, modify, or delete any database object, and revokes the privilege to grant other users any privileges.
