How do you retrieve an Oracle SID name? I am using Oracle Reports. I want to display the SID name on the report.

Select SID from v$session where module = <name>.

The <name> is either the concurrent request shortname or the executable shortname, I can't remember which offhand. This is assuming the report is not being run multiple times at the same time. You can insure that by making it incompatible with itself.
