Use select * from sysprocesses in the master database for blocking and DBID information
Use select * from sysobjects in the database for the objid

Use the value for the dbid and objid in the where clause in the query

If you have the spid you can use dbcc inputbuffer(spid number) to see what the spid is doing.

I meant to say you get the DBID information from select * from sysdatabases not sysprocesses

In the entreprize manager, go to Management/Current activity/Process Info/

Check the process which are currently running.
Then go to locks / Process ID
select "spid correspondingprocessid"
In the right window you will have the details about the lock...

You can kill the process by opening the item in the right window.

If you have the spid you can use dbcc inputbuffer(spid number) to see what the spid is doing.

Run this from Query Analyzer

run sp_who2 with the spid number as the parameter.

The database is listed in the output.

thanks so much rboyd56,

I have one more quetion for you.

I ran dbcc inputbuffer(spid number)  and I got the following info:

EventType      Parameters EventInfo                                      
-------------- ---------- ----------------------------------------------
Language Event 0          SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ COMMITTED

The information is not enough to determine what object it's coming from.  Any idea on why only this info comes up and where can i get the actual name of the object.  thanks again!!

dbcc input buffer just gives you the first command in the buffer. Usually it is enough. HOwever sometimes it is not.

Look at this site to see how to use some of the columns from sysprocesses to see what the actual command that is running is.
