Show data from connection string on report??

Howdy,

Today I figured out how to add two different connection strings to the report (one for test db, one for live) so that I can make changes to the test db, check how it affects the report and then repeat in live when I'm done.

Is there a way that I can display any information from the connection string (i.e. which database server I'm pointing to) on the report so that I can quickly see which data I'm using (and more importantly, don't forget to point to the live db when I publish)?

Thanks.

I tried putting '=ConnectString()' into a text object but QlikView just said it was an error.
