I am on SQL Server 2000, and to secure my database, I want the user to be prompted for a user ID and password before the database is expanded. How might I do this?

There is no way to do this unless you were to write a custom database management tool. Once the user has connected to the SQL Server what ever rights they have are what they have. If you do not wish a user to have access to a database within the SQL Serer you will need to revoke the users rights to the database. Anyone who is a member of the sysadmin fixed server role can not have these rights removed as they have full access to all databases within the SQL Server.
