Im using SQL Server Management Studio 2005 to develop queries.

When I develop queries I usually forget to fomat them and lay them out properly so they are readable.

Are there any tools in Studio 2005 that will format the queries and lay them out automatically or is there a website out  there that shows how a query should be layed out

Thanks

nothing native to sql server or ssms, but you can try out a product from red-gate that does wonders for this sort of thing...its called SQL Refactor.
