    Our Progress version very old 9.1d .

    Is there any option in Progress where we can provide table access for particular user like oracle and sql server.

    Please provide me the details how to grant access to any particular user.

    An "authorization failed" error means that the user lacks the required permissions on the table(s) in question.

    Database-level user permissions are stored in the system table sysdbauth. Table-level user permissions (non-DBA users) are stored in the system table systabauth. Both of these tables are in the sysprogress schema, therefore they are only readable by a SQL client, not an ABL client. ABL clients can only read from tables in the PUB schema.
