I don't have time right at the moment (leaving shortly and will be gone all weekend) but what I would do is check the SQL standard, especially the information schema, for any requirement to track the grantor. Much of what I did was based on the standard so that may have been the instigation for tracking grantor. Though, even without that, we track the grantor of most other grants (possibly all currently?) and it seems like a useful bit of information for DBAs to be able to know who granted what to whom. I can't say I've used it though, personally. Of course, I'll be pretty unhappy if a day comes when I do need it and it's not there. :) Thanks, Stephen
