Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

If you haven't already done so, run the SQL script in the above folder in SQL Server Management Studio to generate a database (not for commercial use or copying) called MAM

Create a new project and model (perhaps you could use this exercise number to name it), importing four tables: tblAnimal, tblProduct, tblSpecies and tblTransaction.

Create two roles as follows:

Role Table Restrictions
Terrestrial Species The species name can not be Bird.
Airborne Species The species name must be Bird.

You should give your roles read access to the model:

The roles

What the roles should look like!


Finally, test each role:

The terrrestrial role

Here's what you should see when you analyse the model in Excel using the Terrestrial role.


That's it!
