Query analyzer for SQL Server 2005/2008

Wouldn’t you like to be able to use the Query Analyzer again? I couldn’t count the number of times people have asked for the query analyzer during SQL Server sessions at conferences or at classes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t exist anymore. Or at least not for public use! If you’ve been to sessions you might’ve seen Microsoft employees (or a single certain Microsoft employee 😉 use his own Query Analyzer.

There is a way to get it back though. I’ve heard that if enough people vote on an item in Microsoft Connect, the team can’t just ignorantly close it again. That’s why I’m writing this.


Click the above link and tell Microsoft it’s important for you to get the Query Analyzer back by rating the item.

    Thank God for MYSQL and POSTGRESS, MS is the WORST software company I have ever worked with! They are sooo bad, just boycott them, send billy to the poor house. When it comes to reliability, MS should get to the back of the bus! They haven’t a CLUE! just take $$ from people and we have to find their bugs. MS should be SHAREWARE at best.

    NEED query analyzer back…lightweight and fast for quick view of data and done. I don’t mind querying available from SSMS but to me the audience of each tool is much different.

  12. That is good that we can receive the loan moreover, that opens new opportunities.
