How To Execute Jobs From The SQL Server Enterprise Manager

Hi there,

I am still new to SQL Server so apologies if this is a very simple question however I'd like to know how I can execute jobs from the SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager GUI as the 'sa' user. Whenever I am logged in as the sa, or any other user and try to run a job I have just created I receive the "sqlserver error 18456 login failed for user sa" error. There must be some sort of permission or privilege fault but can anyone tell me what exactly needs granted or changed?

Thanks in advance.

Is the JOB set up to run as a particaulr user (and maybe their password has changed)?
