Hello experts,

I can't find the execution plan's graphical interface on SQL 2005. I saw the text version with "showplan_text" but I can't see the classic view.

Thanks

In management studio, press CTRL-M (or click the query menu, and select "include actual execution plan")

This will show as a separate tab in your results window

>>how did I miss that

You'd be surprised. Some time back I spent two hours trying to debug a procedure on a server, not understanding why none of my changes were reflected in the system. And then discovered that I was changing the proc on Server A and testing on Server B.

So anything is possible ... :-D
