table name as part of the results?

Last Modified: 2012-08-10
Is it possible to show the name of the table in the results window?

For example:

select '' as tbmBatchParameter, * from tbmBatchParameter where project_id = @ProjectID

shows this in the Results window:

show table name in results
but this is kind of a hack.  

Is there a cleaner way to do it?

This isn't a problem with just one or two selects, but with 20 selects being displayed it can be confusing which table you are looking at.
