Debugging Stored Procedures

Hello,

I've posed this question in the MS-SQL area and hasn't gotten any response, hopefully someone can provide an answer.  I'm trying to use the t-sql debugger in VB.  I have it set up to where I create a data link to a database on my local machine, open the stored procedures folder and right click "debug".  It pulls up the t-sql debugger window.  When I click run, a message pops up and says "The query could not be debugged due to a problem coordinating events with the server".  It then displays in the bottom window "RETURN VALUE =0", and nothing happens.  I've been struggling with this, and can't seem to find any resource for the t-sql debugger. Can someone provide me with a step-by-step resource on how to debug stored procedures using the t-sql debugger in VB or in SQL Server Query Analyzer.  Also, are there any free products out there that will debug stored procedures and/or triggers

Thanks

I don't knwo if this helps, but when I used to work with SQL*Server stored procedures, I just added messages along the way to ensure that it reached certain points in the st-proc.  This is not the best way but is easy.

Yes, I've been using the print statements, but when you have a good size stored procedure or trigger, it can be a pain
