Now here is calls a Database table where User Rights are stored

But access to this database table is given to dbo and Application Uer which is created in IIS Server folder by clicking on Allow Anomymous Login=true

when I try to run the Table Query and pass the USer Name I get null UserName

how to deal with this situation

so do you have anonymous access ON?
try deny anonymous access to your application.

Enable impersonation in your web.config.

By default, ASP.NET web app in IIS runs under "Network Service" account, to access the database, you need to add "Network Service" to your database and map cetain permissions to your database.

Here is the action steps:

1. Open Sql Server (express) management studio.
2. Expand "Security" node. and then, "Logins" node.
3. If the serverName\ASPNET is not there,then ,Right click "Logins" node to create New Login (serverName\ASPNET).
4. Right click Properties of serverName\ASPNET and map the user to the database as "db_ower".
