SQL Error Creating table Dummy Table to Verify Previleges / Extending the Database by Adding New Columns to the Base Table

Hi Friends,

During development when you are connected to your Local Database, you might need to test out any schema changes to a Table or Column.
In order to achieve this, you will be needing to apply the logical changes from Tools to your Local Database.

While doing so, you need to give Privileged Database User & Password to make changes to your Local DB Schema.
If you use your Tools login username & password; you would be greeted with this two errors:

First Error:
SQL Error Creating table Dummy Table to Verify Privileges

Second Error:
42000 (-121): [Siebel Database][ODBC Driver][Adaptive Server Anywhere]Permission denied: you do not have permission to use the "CREATE TABLE" statement

To avoid above errors, you need to change the Privileged User & Password being supplied before applying the change:

Siebel Application User Id User Password
Prior to Version 7.7 DBA SQL
Version 7.7 SIEBEL Local
Version 8.0 SIEBEL Local

Here, Local means to use your own Local User Password.
i.e. Say if you use dummyuser/dummypassword to login to your Local Tools, then you need to use SIEBEL/dummypassword as your Privileged User Id & Privileged User Password for making schema changes to your Local DB.
