    Hi guys,
    Is there any way to find out if the sql server is used by a third party program (such as ms office ...) please?
    Any suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Welcome to the forums!
    Yes, run Profiler and add Application Name column.

    Thanks Luis, I'll give it a try. Are you aware of any T-SQL way of finding it?

    I have two sql servers on the network which I cannot connect through SQL Server Management Studio or profiler with the known username and passwords of ours (Although they are available on the network connections list). When I logon to the windows server I can see SQL Server Service Manager running on both and only system databases in the ms sql data directory. I am just trying to find out if this SQL Server Service Manager running for notting and if the ms sql is not used by any third party program so I can uninstall it from the windows server box.
    Above suggestions will solve %80 of my problem but only these two.
    Thanks a lot for the help.
    Regards,
