hey guys

I am playing around with mssql and I got it working fine with php. However I am used to mysql and its a little different in MSSQL. In my sql if I use the Administration tool, it lets me browse the tables for the data. However in MSSQL if I use the SQL Server management tool, it does not let me browse the data, instead it gives me the column names. I was wondering if there is any way to browse the data. I would need step by step instructions for that as I am new to the SQL Management tool. Also is there any think like phpmyadmin for MSSQL?

Thanks

Besides the Aneesh's suggestion, you can query directly.
Open a new Query Window, pressing the "New Query" button, then write:
     USE yourDBName;
     SELECT * FROM yourTableName;
Press F5
