Using SQL Server 2008: If I run a query from Management Studio on my workstation and just say select Host_Name() as myPC, then it correctly returns the name of my workstation.
I created a trigger on a table that uses the Host_Name() function when a record in that table is updated. If I connect to SQL server using Microsoft Access, modifiy a record in the table, then the function doesn't return the name of my workstation or even the name of the server that SQL server is hosted on. Instead it returns the name of our Terminal Server.
What's going on here? How can I correctly identify either the workstation or login name of the user that is modifying a record? We are not using Windows authentication. We are accessing sql server with Microsoft Access via ODBC connection.
