    Hi Daoud,Thanks for your insights into GP which have been useful to many of us.Do you perhaps know the tables related to the assignment of users to entities? Doing it manually seems the inefficient way to go and I would prefer to write a SQL to do the insertion if I know the tables. ThanksRegards,Sidney
