SQL Server-Determine which query is taking a long time to complete


Cool little trick to determine which sql query which is taking a long time to execute, first while offending query is running from another machine do

EXEC sp_who2

Locate the SPID responsible via Login, DBName and ProgramName columns, then do


The offending query will be in the EventInfo column.  This is a great little time saver for me, before I found out about this I used to split my concatenated query script in to multiple sql files until I located the problem query
