In a trace file, there is an "application name" field.  It displays "Query Analyzer", "SQL EM", or "Visual Basic", ".Net SQLClient Provider", etc.

We have applications that use Visual Basic 6.0 and ASP.NET.  I'm trying to figure out how to pass a name we decide on ("Application X") to the Trace/Audit file so that it shows up in the Application Name Field through both of them.

Hi JaffaKREE,

There is a post on the msdn forums that indicates:

"The name normally comes from the the connection string:
server=MyServer;database=MyDatabase;Integrated Security=SSPI;Application Name=ApplicationName;"
