Any way to retrieve execution plan after PreparedStatement runs?

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
Dear Experts,

My Java app issues a Java PreparedStatement against an MS SQL 2000 db.  I suspect it's actually causing a table scan at a customer site.  Is there any way I can retrieve the execution plan after the PreparedStatement exectutes?  (The statement would be issued 10,000 times each time my app runs...)

I know it's not possible through Java.  Is it possible through SQL 2000?  'm a bit of a dummie about SQL 2000.  Is there a setting I can use such that the execution plan(s) would be stored in a SQL log?
