It's just that ordinarily as the owner of an object, I can do what I like with it. In this case, I can't. In fact, once I've created the table I can't access it. I guess the surprising thing to me is that I'm allowed to create it without usage privilege. However, it is what it is, and as it is intended behaviour I will happily work with it. Perhaps some extra notes in the documentation of the sql-grants section might be useful. As a side note: creating a file in a write-only directory on Unix doesn't work for me. > regards, tom lane Thanks for the response. __ Marc
