Public Sub whoami()

   Dim oSc As IBBSessionContext

   Set oSc = REApplication.SessionContext

   'the RegRoot property will give the REINI_# which will allow

   'the user to determine which database is open. Generally REINI_50

   'is Sample and REINI_1 or REINI_2 is production

   Debug.Print oSc.RegRoot


End Sub

Once you have the REINI_Value:

    • Open the registry.

    • Browse to the path returned from SessionContext.RegRoot (Software\Blackbaud\REIni_1).

    • Select the General key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blackbaud\REINI_1\General).

    • Look for the DSN String Value (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blackbaud\REINI_1\General\DSN).

    • Take note of the data value (RE7_1).


    • Highlight the corresponding entry (RE7_1).

    • Take note of the Server and Database String Values.
