if it's helpful the login does not have any roles assigned to it either.

It is not a windows login. The user appears to be able to do this on all dtabases although I have been using a single database as my test case.

comment Hidden user rights
I've logged in as the sqlserver user that the apposes and yes username is returning the correct name. Query number 2 came back as a blank set and query number 3 gives me the name of one of our developers as the owner. Not the user that I'm troubleshooting.

the first query only came back with Connect Database. The second query came back with nothing. I tried running the revoke anyway but that didn't help. The user is still able to drop and create a table on the database.

comment incorrect value from SUM Function
@ypercube I don't understand. Why would a float data type all of a sudden cause sql to incorrectly add the values?

comment linked server hanging
Sorry I should have guessed that. It's something I hadn't thought to try but I can't take that db offline during regular hours. Thanks though.

comment linked server hanging
Unfortunately the linked server doesn't seam to like that command. I get an error: User does not have permission to alter database, the database does not exist, or the database is not in a state that allows access checks.

comment linked server hanging
+1 as that's an excellent reply unfortunately though not the answer. I have no msaccess processes open. I do a copy of the db down to my location which ensures the SQL Server is the only connection.

comment unclear SQL Server Issue
Maxdop is set to 6. The network admin said that he didn't see anything in the windows logs. I'll have to find the cluster logs. I'm not certain if those were checked.
