Wrap Text In Query Analyzer

Posted on 2004-10-14

I'm trying to edit a long Select query, but most of it is on one very long line. How can I get the text to wrap?

Also, couldn't find a graphical design tool in Query Analyzer - just want to confirm that this is only available in Enterprise Manager.

Should also mention that this is an update query and the text string is very long.

You have to manually wrap the text in QA, and the GUI's on in EM.

Is there any reason you do not want to use carriage returns in your query?

It does not need to be all one one line.

The graphical query builder is only available in enterprise manager.
