RE: Grant column

The ability to do column level DML grants is not a new feature. On a
developers desk I found an old Oracle7 Server SQL manual (Dec. 1992) and the
syntax is there. Part number 778-70-1292, pg 4-311.

Thanks Edgar, David, Raj, everyone. 

Any speculation why Oracle got stingy on the SELECT? I guess I can see maybe
there are times where creating a view might interfere with update or insert.
Just seems like SELECT would have been easy to include while they were
coding this change. Does anyone know if this feature was added for ANSI
compatibility?

From documentation: "You can specify columns only when granting the
INSERT, REFERENCES, or UPDATE privilege.".
