    Question

    I am loggeg in as sys and when I try this command

    SQL> 2
    2* from dba_tab_grants
    SQL> grant select production.dws_contract_info to migrate with grant option;

    I get the following error

    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-00990: missing or invalid privilege

    Shouldn't sys be able to do this??

    2 things

    1.-It's "GRANT SELECT ON"
    2.-Only the user owner of the object can grant privileges to others.

    No.

    Unless object_owner has given privilege to sys with grant option.

    So login as that user and issue the statement and it will work.

    log on as production to the database

    then try
    grant select on dws_contract_info to migrate with grant option;

    Exactly, you should login as USER to grant permission of the users objects

    yes, I initialy logged in as the user but was unable to grant it so I tried as sys and got the same err, I have rebooted the server and all errors I was getting are gone.

    Thanks to all,
    SM
