Below is an example of the statement being displayed in the header of the messages:

To configure this is SSMS follow the steps below:

  1. Open SSMS
  2. Select Tools | Options
  3. Expand Query Results
  4. Expand SQL Server
  5. Select Results to Text
  6. Check Include the query in the result set
