Hi Alan and Dean;I thought the problem would be more obvious but it isn't. I created two databases on the same server on another computer and can create roles with the same names and drop them at leisure.�
The problem computer is as described. I have two databases on the same server. I can create and drop roles on one database (no grants - just CREATE ROLE MY_ROLE) but cannot use the same role name on the second database. I thought it was a server problem.I will post the error messages tomorrow when I get back to my other computer.ThanksLin

we can�t read your mind, but I'll have a guess.

You think that by creating a role on the new database, all the grants from

the other DB will suddenly apply?


Roles and grants are not server bound, they are database bound.
