Know the USer ID and Initial catalog of SQL Server through VB

How can we know the User Name, Initial Catalog name of SQL server through visual basic 6.0 at runtime.

I want to populate the names of the database users and the initial catalog in the SQL Server database in combobox by passing the SERVER NAME.

If you have permissions to the Master database on SQL server you can use Select Name From Master.dbo.SysDatabases to get a list of database names. You can also use:

Select Name,DBName From Master.dbo.SysLogins

Which will give you the user names and their associated default database.

You can also use SQL-DMO to accomplish this.

Dear gencross,

Will you please send me a sample code on how to use the SQL-DMO object as you have said.

Thanks & regards,
Mathew

This is code I use with SQL 7...

'First reference the Microsoft SQL-DMO Library

'Get a list of available SQL Servers, if you need to
Dim objSQL As SQLDMO.NameList
Set objSQL = SQLDMO.ListAvailableSQLServers
For X = 0 To objSQL.Count - 1
    Debug.Print objSQL(X)
Next

'Connect to server
Dim objSQLServer As SQLDMO.SQLServer
Set objSQLServer = New SQLDMO.SQLServer

'Fill in connection info
sServerName = "Server"
sUserID = "sa"
sPwd = ""

objSQLServer.Connect sServerName, sUserID, sPwd

This is the best I can do right now, but if you look through the object you should be able to find what you are looking for.  Let me know if you need more assistance.
