I have an app that was written in vb6 years ago.  I use the app on several different machines and I am wondering if there is a way that I can get it to recognize the name of the pc so I can access the sql server 2008 database regardless of which machine I am running it on (ie: "\PCName\SQLExpress".  Or better yet, get at the local db without making a machine reference at all.

Thanks~
