    Loginame: mysybsa
    Fullname: Sybase Server maintenance user
    Configured Authorization:

    2> go
    Parameter Name Default Memory Used Config Value Run Value Unit Type
    --------------------------- ----------- ------------- -------------- ------------ ------ -------
    enable granular permissions 0 0 1 1 switch dynamic
  3. Alter table drop column is saying it needs "ALTER ANY TABLE" permission:
    1> alter table anotheruser.TABLE1 drop column1, column2
    2> go
    Msg 10330, Level 14, State 1
    Server 'MYSERVER', Line 1
    ALTER TABLE or ALTER ANY TABLE permission denied on object TABLE1, database MYDB, owner anotheruser

  4. Granted "alter any table" permission to login user didn't work

  5. Using "setuser anotheruser" then alter table, does work
