Hi,
using Sybase Central on ASE 12.5.* if I examine a particular login the Users tab displays which users in  which databases are mapped to this login. e.g. by default the sa login is mapped to the dbo user in master, model, sybsystemdb and sybsystemprocs databases.

How can I pull this info out using SQL? syslogins and sysdatabases don't seem to have the right relationship? Can this be done with out querying each individual db?

You have to query the sysusers table in each database, however, it is not a problem if you know the databases you are interested in.  Just create a view in sybsystemprocs that does a UNION ALL query of the sysusers tables in all of the databases you are interested in.  Then you can join that to master..syslogins
or, for that matter, but the join right in the view.  Your done.

If you have to make the routine dynamic so that you don't have to know the database names ahead of time, just write a little stored procedure to get it for you.  Open a cursor on sysdatabases, create a temp table, build a dynamic sql statement to insert/select the contents of each sysusers table into the temp table, then join that mess with syslogins and you are done.

Hope that helps.

Rob Verschoor (www.sypron.nl) has a lot of handy little utilities for just such a purpose:

There are many of them but the one that I am think of is "sp_rv_exec" that executes a procedure in every database.

Rob's examples show:
exec sp_rv_exec "sp_adduser", "jsmith"                          -- adds user "jsmith" to all databases
exec sp_rv_exec "sp_addtype", "newtype", "char(25)"      -- adds datatype "newtype" to all databases

so why not:
exec sp_rv_exec "sp_helpuser", "fred"
