Returns column privileges for the specified table on the specified linked server.
sp_column_privileges_ex [ @table_server = ] 'table_server' [ , [ @table_name = ] 'table_name' ] [ , [ @table_schema = ] 'table_schema' ] [ , [ @table_catalog = ] 'table_catalog' ] [ , [ @column_name = ] 'column_name' ]
The following table shows the result set columns. The results returned are ordered by TABLE_QUALIFIER, TABLE_OWNER, TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, and PRIVILEGE.
Table qualifier name. Various DBMS products support three-part naming for tables (qualifier.owner.name). In SQL Server 2008, this column represents the database name. In some products, it represents the server name of the table's database environment. This field can be NULL.
Table owner name. In SQL Server, this column represents the name of the database user who created the table. This field always returns a value.
Table name. This field always returns a value.
Column name, for each column of the TABLE_NAME returned. This field always returns a value.
Database user name that has granted permissions on this COLUMN_NAME to the listed GRANTEE. In SQL Server, this column is always the same as the TABLE_OWNER. This field always returns a value.
The GRANTOR column can be either the database owner (TABLE_OWNER) or someone to whom the database owner granted permissions by using the WITH GRANT OPTION clause in the GRANT statement.
Database user name that has been granted permissions on this COLUMN_NAME by the listed GRANTOR. This field always returns a value.
One of the available column permissions. Column permissions can be one of the following values (or other values supported by the data source when implementation is defined):
SELECT = GRANTEE can retrieve data for the columns.
INSERT = GRANTEE can provide data for this column when new rows are inserted (by the GRANTEE) into the table.
UPDATE = GRANTEE can modify existing data in the column.
REFERENCES = GRANTEE can reference a column in a foreign table in a primary key/foreign key relationship. Primary key/foreign key relationships are defined with table constraints.
Indicates whether the GRANTEE is permitted to grant permissions to other users (often referred to as "grant with grant" permission). Can be YES, NO, or NULL. An unknown, or NULL, value refers to a data source where "grant with grant" is not applicable.
The following example returns column privilege information for the HumanResources.Department table in the AdventureWorks2008R2 database on the Seattle1 linked server.
EXEC sp_column_privileges_ex @table_server = 'Seattle1', @table_name = 'Department', @table_schema = 'HumanResources', @table_catalog ='AdventureWorks2008R2';
