SQL Query Designer Control for VB .NET

I have a requirement to allow users to create simple views in a SQL database, ideally I would like to do this via my existing application without the use of the SQL Management Studio.

Does anybody know of a SQL query designer control that would allow the creation and saving of views in an MS Access/SQL style designer?

Well there are a few around - some very good commercial ones such as : http://www.componentsource.com/products/active-query-builder-net/index.html
and http://www.activequerybuilder.com/product.html  or for a different style : http://devtools.korzh.com/eq/

then there are free ones - well worth looking into : http://www.programurl.com/active-query-builder-free-edition.htm   same as the first link...but free version.

some need a fair bit of "tidying up" but the core is there : http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/SQL_Builder.aspx

and there's a few hundred more (share and free ware) : http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Search/newsearch.php3?S_S=sql+query+builder

Boo-Hoo, not even an assist - I thought  http://www.programurl.com/active-query-builder-free-edition.htm   was a shoe-in for sure.
