Looks like you have done some good work.

However, I tried to run the stored procedure and got....

Msg 6841, Level 16, State 1, Procedure who4, Line 28
FOR XML could not serialize the data for node 'processing-instruction(definition)' because it contains a character (0x0000) which is not allowed in XML. To retrieve this data using FOR XML, convert it to binary, varbinary or image data type and use the BINARY BASE64 directive.

I will try and debug if/when I get time, If any anyone else has a solution already then tell me!

Nice article, Jason.
I haven't tried your code yet, but looks very neat.
Well done.

Very nice. Code works fine on our SQL2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 server. Thanks!

Very well written, Jason! I appreciate the elimination of the DBCC INPUTBUFFER step after all of my sp_who2 steps.

First - thanks.

Second, what version and patch level of SQL Server? I have not encountered this in my testing.
