in management studio, to go tools, options, query results, sql server, results to grid...make sure the option is checked to include column headers.

THe funny thing is that it is already set like this?  I still can't get the headers!

Darn.  Me too!  It should be obvious that that would do it but I still get no headers!  I'm in SQL 2005 Query Analyzer.

From MSSMS go to  QUERY---QueryOptions--Grid then CHECK on the 'Include column headers when copying or saving results'
