Need a good editor option for Stored Procedure in SQL 2000. The new EM just isn't cutting it.

I haev been working in SQL 7 for years and typically use Enterprise Manager to create/edit by stored procedures.  I recently started working on a SQL 2000.  Using the new version of EM, which is required for SQL 2000, I was suprised to see that the edit/view window for SPs was not sizeable.  I'm not sure if there is a setting somewhere to make it sizeable or not.  If not, I'm wondering what others are using to edit SPs.  I like the highlighting and color in EM, so I'm particular to that --- that is, notepad just won't cut it for me.  I'm looking for something a bit more integrated.  Is there something I can use in Visual Studio.net Professional?  Any other recommendations?

Thanks

Scott

Have you tried Query Analyzer?  It's part of the toolset along with EM.

Hi Blades,

I am using SQL 2000 and like you said I also like to use EM, and yes, it is resizeable (clicking on its border).
If you really can't resize that window...wow...thats weird...
Another good option is the query analyser (all new)....try it:
Go to Tools --  Object browser and u have tons of options, some of them very helpful...
I hope that helps...

Hi,

I use Edit Plus for absolutely everything, it's superb.
http://www.editplus.com/

You can download the SQL syntax highlighting config file from here:
ftp://ftp.editplus.com/files/tsql1.zip

It's also possible to set up a macro that will execute your SQL on the server using osql.exe

If that sounds like too much hard work, try Aqua Data Studio.  It's a free alternative to Enterprise Manager and you can even use it to connect to other types of database.

Good luck!
