I am using SSMS to execute a batch, which has multiple long running updates statements. SSMS only displays the results of the updates statements (how many rows were affected) after all the queries in the batch have completed. Is there any way to get SSMS to display the result of each query as soon as it completes?  So that i can get some feedback of it's progress while it is executing rather than waiting for it to be done?

thx,

The only way you can get any feedback would be separating each query with a GO and add print statements such as:
PRINT 'Query XYZ completed'

But you should understand that adding GO statement could make your queries syntactically incorrect.
