If you are working with Oracle, then try Toad. Its really useful - displays all the data in your tables in the form of an Excel sheet. You can add/ remove/ modify rows like that. You can right-click and add tables, choose data-types of columns using combo-boxes, get the query and code generated automatically, manage stored procedures and almost everything with it. It also has a query-editor - just the kind of thing which you want.

If are you using MS-SQL Server use the Query Analyzer, it's very simple and have code highlights and others cool features.

Actually, i'm using MS Access.. but i need a little standalone program to help me edit my queries.. cause it's a bit hard to follow in the query editor used in MS Access.. it wears my eyes out..
I need a simple program, nothing to install on a server or something...
is there any?

Hi,

You can download the editor VIM from http://www.vim.org/download.php#pc , its a self-installing editor. Can deal with atleast 70 different languages.

Moreover, you can open a .sql file and open it with GVIM, and it shows the SQL keywords in different colors, and data in other color.

Regards,

Warturtle

Programmer's notepad has a mode for SQL Files (and a few other languages) which does syntax highlighting:

The Scintilla Text Editor (SciTE) also has an SQL mode, and many other modes, which also does syntax highlighting:
