Hello,

We recently upgraded to Microsoft SQL Server and I'm wondering if there's a tool similar to Navicat for MySQL that I can install on my PC (Windows 7 64-bit) to query for data, etc.

A couple of options come to mind.

One is TOAD for SQL Server : http://www.toadsoft.com/toadsqlserver/toad_sqlserver.htm

Another would be the Microsoft SQL Server Mangement Studio that comes with the SQL Server product.

Is the SQL server management tool (I've used that on the server itself) able to load without clogging up the rest of the PC? We had attempted to load it once before but it appeared that it was going to install the whole shoot and match on the PC.

Yes, if you just install the client tools it's not too heavy.

Hmm, I like the look of TOAD, but is it possible to key data directly into it without executing SQL statements?

If you mean update tables sort of like if you wee in Excel, then yes, TOAD supports that.  At least the pay version does, which we use here, both the SQL Server and Oracle versions, good tools, but not cheap.  But I'm pretty sure the free versions of TOAD still support table driven data updates, just double check that.
