Question Grant privileges in Oracle

i have installed oracle 10g and two databases.
i enter database1 as sysdba and create a user called user1.i give the privileges as "select on" to user1.
i enter sqlplus from the shell prompt. i enter as user1. but when i do "select * from emp" i have a "the table doesn't exist". how can i give the privileges to this user? how can i see his privileges and the tables this user1 can access?

What do you mean by:
i give the privileges as "select on" to user1
Select on what?

Who does the table belong to? If it belongs to a different user (schema) then the owner should grant you select.

SQL> show user
USER is "USER12"
SQL> select * from scott.emp;
select * from scott.emp
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist

SQL> conn scott/tiger
SQL> grant select on emp to user12;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn user12/user12
SQL> select count(1) from scott.emp;


SQL> show user
USER is "USER12"

SQL> select grantor, grantee, table_name from user_tab_privs;

GRANTOR                        GRANTEE                        TABLE_NAME
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------
SCOTT                          USER12                         EMP

SQL> select view_name from all_views where view_name like '%PRIV%' order by 1;

There's a bunch of data dictionary views which can give you the info you're after.

OR if there is no synonym,
select fld1 from username.table;

I'm with Scottn ie., confused - you can do
'grant select on schema.tablename;' is that what you mean?
