Hi Everyone,

I'd like to know if there's famous tools for managing SQL Server 2005 that is equivalent as of TOAD for Oracle ?

 (preferably freeware)


Thanks

as usual :)

now, toad (quest software) has also a version for mssql server:
http://www.toadsoft.com/toadsqlserver/toad_sqlserver.htm
but it's far from free (but it's very good)

anyhow, did you already check out this page:

There is a freeware version of Toad.

There is also red-gate - but definitely NOT free... http://www.red-gate.com/products/SQL_Professional_Toolbelt/index.htm

But, what kind of things do you think you need the extra toolsets for ?

AngelIII, that last link is pretty darn good ...

Yes,

but as usual TOAD is/can never be freeware :-| it is trial.

Not sure if this is the same "toad" but it is the toadsoft site, not the Quest site : http://www.toadsoft.com/get2knowSS/index.html
