Stored procedures

by erik.bronckaers In reply to DOWNLOAD: 10 common SQL S ...

The point about the stored procedures is incomplete.
When a user can execute a stored procedure that accesses a table, the user does not need access to that table unless dynamic SQL is used.
If static SQL is used in the stored procedure, only the owner of the procedure needs access to the table not the executor. SQL Server will execute the SQL in the context of the owner of the procedure.
If dynamic sql is used, meaning string manipulation is used to generate the SQL that is executed using 'exec', than the executor needs access to the table because SQL Server will execute the dynamic SQL in the context of the caller (the executor). This way elevation of priviledge is prohibited.
