Can you get the name of the DB you are currently connected to in SQL?

Can you get the name of the DB you are currently connected to in SQL?

(OP)
I have a program with a lot of SQL connections in it and although I know how to open, close, use, change, etc. I can't find a way to pull the DB name I am currently connected to. I have a service program with a log procedure in it that does SQL connects. What I want to do is when the "logger" is called I want to check the current SQL connection, then reset it, do my logging and change the connection back to what it was before leaving the logger. Is there a was in embedded SQL to get the DataBase name that I am connected to?

RE: Can you get the name of the DB you are currently connected to in SQL?

On AS/400 the database name is IBM DB/2 UDB. Do you mean the table names on which your SQL Statements operates?

RE: Can you get the name of the DB you are currently connected to in SQL?

Or did you mean the library?

There is a command PRTSQLINF, which prints some SQL info.

Using STRSQL:

CODE

SELECT current server FROM sysibm/sysdummy1

returns the server name (i.e., the machine).
