DBCC Inputbuffer

I'm trying to troubleshoot a SQL issue. I know it's a blocking issue in SQL 2005...so I go do the following:

1) sp_who2
2) I find the spid that is causing the block and do an DBCC Inputbuffer(spid)

The issue with this is that it only displays 256 characters. So, I'll only see part of a SQL Query and it truncates. Is there another tool or some kind of parameter I could put on this command so that the results aren't truncated?

Thanks

Is an issue with dbcc inputbuffer(or was)...might be fixed w/ SP2.

At any rate, try this instead...make sure your db compt. level is set to 90

  select text from sys.dm_exec_requests r  cross apply sys.dm_exec_sql_text(sql_handle)  
where session_id = yourspidfromspwho

Awesome! Thank you so much for your help. This is out of the scope of this question, but what's the difference between using JOIN and APPLY in a SQL Statement...it seems as though they accomplish similiar tasks.

No problem....the APPLY is new to 2005 and is used to pass values from a table or view as parameters into a table-valued function (which you can't do w/ a JOIN operator)
