    I have a table name A and owned ny JOHN_DO, this table is granted to public. Another user named KATHY logged into the database and do a SELECT statement from table A. Here is the problem. KATHY have do this statement

    SELECT * from JOHN_DO.A

    I thought KAthy doesn't have to have JOHN_DO in front of the A table since JOHN_DO already granted table A to public. Any way, I want to be able to query A table by typing

    SELECT * FROM A

    how do I do that ?

    grant select doesnt mean everyone can select the table just using the table name

    you need to create a public synonym

    I think you can create a public synonym for table A
    if you don't want to use owner_name.table_name convention.

    Say again?

    1. john creates the table
    2. john grants select to public
    3. john or system creates a public synonym
    create public synonym tablea for john.tablea
    4. mary can now select * from tablea
