Good Morning to all!!! First Question: Does anyone knows how to use (i dont know the name in english, in portuguese is macro substituiÃ§Ã£o). It is like this: You declare a variable called 'x' char(4) and another called 'y' char(3). you set value like 'DBO.' to x and (imagine the table name like 'OKK' than the 'y' will be set like 'OKK'.) The String will be 'DBO.OKK', but if you type the sintax 'SELECT * FROM @X+@Y' the sql server 2000 will not execute because i am trying to select some values of a String, not a table. In visual foxpro, for exemple, i should use in this case something like this [&] character to say to the compiler that is not a String. Is there someway to do it in SQL Server 2000? This is most usefull when working will multiples owners like i am doing. Second: Is there any sys command in SQL Server 2000 to list all owners of a single database? Thanks for any help!
