Microsoft Query for Excel 2010:  Making the "Command text" Box Bigger

Hello:

After using the Microsoft Query wizard for Excel 2010 (32-bit), you are always able to click the Data menu selection, choose "Connections...Properties", and click the Definition tab.

In that tab is the "Command text" box, where you can enter a T-SQL "select" query.

I know that this is a strange question.  But, is there any way of making that box bigger?  

If so, it would make it so much easier to experiment with typing T-SQL "select" queries.  And, it would save the end user the trouble of having to go back and forth to the SQL Server Management Studio query editor to test queries.

Thank you.

John

Hi John,

The entire dialog box is resizable, which also resizes the Command Text box. Grab the bottom right corner and resize as required.
