Hi everybody! I need to get the application names that map to our SQL databases. I can get a lot of information using sys.sysprocesses and the connections/sessions DMVs, but the program name will be .Net SqlClient Data Provider, which doesn't tell me the specific app name. I can select app_name() to retrieve the current application, which gives me the info I want, but I want it for all processes. I'd obviously like to do this in T-SQL but am open to capturing this using VB. Any help would be most appreciated.
