Users & Schema's

Can anyone shed some light on this or am I just going mad!!.

We have a situation whereby multiple users need to access (both selects and dml) tables belonging to 1 specific schema, this must also be achieved without prefixing the tables with the userid as the SQL is driven by the application and is not configurable.

My original idea was to use synonyms but I am sure that I have read somewhere that in 8i there was an alternative to this whereby a user can be set up to use another users schema eg. USERA when logged on will effectively be treated as if they are logged on as USERB. I have searched every bit of documentation I can find (manuals, metalink etc) but can find no mention of this, have I just dreamn't this or can someone shed some light.

Many thanks for any replies.
