The quickest way to verify a user name in a database is probably to use the SQLCMD tool. You can connect to the server, select the database, and check which user name is linked the current login name as shown below.

Start a command window and enter the following command:

C:\>SQLCMD -S LOCALHOST\SQLEXPRESS -U Fyi_Login -P IYF
1> USE FyiCenterData;
2> GO
Changed database context to 'FyiCenterData'.

1> PRINT User_Name();
2> GO
Fyi_User

This shows user "Fyi_User" in database "FyiCenterData" is linked to login name "Fyi_Login".
