How can I return the schema name of a Oracle table

How can I return the schema name of a Oracle table

How can I return the schema name of a Oracle table

I am writing reports in CR 10 against a Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release db via a direct connection.  

My db has multiple schemas and my reports never cross schemas.  I will frequently make new copies of reports and point them to a different schema. Instead of modifying items in each report (such as headers, date ranges, etc) when I make these copies, I want to have one or more custom functions to programatically set these.  

My thinking is that if I can evaluate the schema name and then pass it to the custom function, then I can program my function to return to proper results based on what schema the report is pointing to.

Can anyone help?

select owner from all_tables where table_name = 'TABLE_NAME_HERE'
