I think you'd use the SQL Profiler tool

for each spid, you can run
dbcc inputbuffer (spid)

I repeat my sentance:
for EACH spid, you can run

there is nothing "for each" built-in in sql server 2000.
now, you might be using sql server 2005?

There is also fn_get_sql (if you are running 2000 and sp3 or greater).

From BOL:
DECLARE @Handle varbinary(64);
SELECT @Handle = sql_handle
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests
WHERE session_id = 52 and request_id = 0;
SELECT * FROM ::fn_get_sql(@Handle);
GO


You would create a cursor to walk through the spids and find the active and then the fn_get_sql or inputbuffer. This link has an example of how it is done: http://www.sommarskog.se/sqlutil/aba_lockinfo.html

ptjcb,
I run following script in SQL Analyzer and get error -- Invalid object name 'sys.dm_exec_requests'.
What is dm_exec_requests?  Thanks!

DECLARE @Handle varbinary(64);
SELECT @Handle = sql_handle
FROM sys.dm_exec_requests
WHERE session_id = 52 and request_id = 0;
SELECT * FROM ::fn_get_sql(@Handle);
GO

Server: Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Invalid object name 'sys.dm_exec_requests'.

Oh...that's the 2005 version. This is the 2000 version (from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325607)

DECLARE @Handle binary(20)
SELECT @Handle = sql_handle FROM sysprocesses WHERE spid = 52
SELECT * FROM ::fn_get_sql(@Handle)


sys.dm_exec_requests is a sql 2005 dynamic view.
