Is there anyway that SQL Server 2005 can get information contained within the ConnectionString that was used to connect to the database for use in a trigger.

For example, if I have an application that uses the ConnectionString...
"server=(local); database=test; user=sa; pwd=testing; applicationname=myprogram"

how can I get out the applicationname attribute???

I would create a SQL login specific to the application instead of using sa and assign it permissions required by the app.  Then you could know that the value returned by current_user is your application.
