Who made changes and with what executable?

We are running Oracle 8i. Management would like a report of who is making what changes to the database. Here's the kicker -- they want to know what executable that person used to execute the SQL. For instance, did they use SQL*Plus or some other .exe? Is there any way in Oracle 8i to get that information?

You can query V$SESSION, specifically the PROGRAM column. Not all applications show up here, but this is your only source for this type of information.
