List Dbs On A Server With The Name Of The Template Name They Inherit From

This is an agent that creates a text file listing the database files on a given
server with the name of the template they inherit their design from. This
allows an audit to be done of design inheritance if there are many dbs
inheriting from the same template.
'DB inherit from template (list)|DbTempNames:

Option Public
Option Declare

Sub Initialize
' Creates a textfile list of databases with the names of templates they
inherit from for a given server
