I'm using MS SQL 2000 Server. A few weeks ago I ran a fairly complex query against the database. Unfortunately I didn't save this query, now I need to run this same report. Is it possible for me to find this query in the sql transaction history logs? Can I do a search for part of my query to find it?

Also, SELECT statements will never be in the tran log...only DML statements, such as INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE...and then only if you're in FULL recovery model.
