    So what's the informal word for 'U'??
    I speak French and German, and I found that the safest way for English speakers to decide when to switch to "Tu" and "Sie/Euch" respectively is to not decide at all; simply use the formal until the native speaker is comfortable enough to switch to informal.
    Our organisation has an office in Germany, interestingly I found everyone under 50 will start out with "Du" whereas the older ones begin with "Sie" - and some don't ever progress to "Du" !!

    The informal alternative for U is je, or jij in case it is a little stressed. It seems like the Belgian version of Dutch, Flemish, switches the two: U is for intimates, and jij for formal contacts - but only with older speakers (over 50).

    Belgium is a strange nation, I've often wondered why it exists at all...wouldn't it be linguistically simpler to split Vlaanders off and allow the Netherlands to absorb it, and let Bruxelles/Wallonia join France or go independant? I've noticed such ill-will between the two communities it's a wonder why they don't just have a convenient "Velvet divorce"!!

    Bad idea, really. Things are organized very differently across the border.
    There is some talk about a 'reunion' (since the 1839 separation, which was after the 1813 unification) since recently neither Flemish nor Walloon politicians seem to be able to accept any type of coalition for forming a federal government after the elections. The Dutch thrive on colourful coalition governments.
    But let's not go into politics here ...

    Back to SQL then...the two versions of code return differing resultsets on the same server! My original returns 133 servers without editions, yours returns 51 WITH editions.
    I can't explain the difference!
    Cheers,

    I was executing 'OSQL -L' to get a list of all visible servers. With integrated security, perhaps you need a different command?

    Quite possibly, but I don't know an alternative. However, it may be worth going back to the original script ("text-ommitted" are server names), I'm a member of a DBA global group that has full SA access to all boxes.
