To Identify blocks if using Solomon IV

,

Our business accounting software is Microsoft Business Solutions Solomon IV.
which is now being called Dynamics Solomon. You will see specific refernces to this
software in this code. I originally developed this to gain faster view of issues we were
having with Solomon.
This procedure analyzes system tables and looks for blocks. This is
faster than using enterprise manager to look for blocks on the system.
This can be called from any database if you install in master. This proc will look at system
tables and execute DBCC INPUTBUFFER to attempt to get some idea of what is happening in the
lock contention.
If you are running Solomon you can pass the Solomon System Database name as parameter 1 and
it will look up user contact info such as phone number and pass that info on.
