SELECT db_name(),p.name, permission_name, state_desc, object_name(major_id) 
FROM sys.database_permissions dp JOIN sys.database_principals p 
ON dp.grantee_principal_id = p.principal_id AND name = 'DECLA\DE-eDEC_Developers'
union
USE DEC_HED
SELECT db_name(),p.name, permission_name, state_desc, object_name(major_id)

Check this one


SELECT db_name(),p.name, permission_name, state_desc, object_name(major_id)
FROM sys.database_permissions dp JOIN sys.database_principals p
ON dp.grantee_principal_id = p.principal_id AND name = 'DECLA\DE-eDEC_Developers'
union all

SELECT db_name(),p.name, permission_name, state_desc, object_name(major_id)
FROM sys.database_permissions dp JOIN sys.database_principals p
ON dp.grantee_principal_id = p.principal_id AND name = 'DECLA\DE-eDEC_Developers'
union all

SELECT db_name(),p.name, permission_name, state_desc, object_name(major_id)
FROM sys.database_permissions dp JOIN sys.database_principals p
ON dp.grantee_principal_id = p.principal_id AND name = 'DECLA\DE-eDEC_Developers'

You can put the database name before the tablename

Then you will have no choice, but to resort to dynamic SQL.

db_name() indeed only returns the name of the current db.

Same you have to refere to a function in the actual db       dbname.schema.function . Making your own function can help.

You can also create a view in each database with the db-specific things like db_name() and maybe other stuff you want to.  Joining them in the db_name() is then that off the database where the view is.
