Looking for Client Query Analyzer (SQL Server 2008) or Equivalent Reporting Tools


I've recently upgraded from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2008.  My accounting and marketing team is skilled and has been using SQL Query Analyzer for years to run smaller queries and build small Crystal Reports.  Unfortunately Query Analyzer is now bundled into the management studio.  That's a bit too much software for this level of power users.

Is there a client-side query analyzer for SQL Server 2008?  I'd rather use a Microsoft product than a 3rd party tool, but I suppose I could do that too.  Looking for something simple that will:

1.  Show users the database tables and/or views

2.  Run queries

Perhaps query analyzer isn't the way to go and my team needs a different reporting system.  If this is the way MS is heading, could you direct me towards a product or service that allows power users to get the information they need?  They will still need to look at raw data to build Crystal Reports though.

Problem opening dotnet 1.1 projet on 2008 web server


 We recently upgraded to a 2008 development web server and I installed all the stuff to get dot net 1.1 app working on the server.  I can host them and they work.  My problem is that when I try to open one in VS 2003 I get the following error.  I set up the web server the same as my previous one, and I think a long time  ago I got this error when we set up current one but do not remember how to resolve it.  So I moved my project files from the old server to the new server and then I get these errors. 


The web Server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web Project located at the following url: Http://localhost:/MobTracker. 'Http/1.1 500 server error

Oracle Linked serve Query performance in 2000 vs 2008 R2 64 Bit

Hi everyone We have started to migrate one of our reporting systems from Sql 2000 to Sql 2008 R2.  One of the steps has been to test the perforance of certain Oracle linked server queries between each server.  We are finding on average 3 fold better perforance stats (in terms of query completion time) on the old server.  This should obviously not be the case.  The new server has signifantly more CPU/Memory/IO resources to play with, and it is 64 bit (not to mention its new!).  Here's what I got so far: Old server: SQL 2000 on W2000 both fully patched.  Old Dell Dual core with 3 GB of Ram running on two soft IDE Mirrored drives (yes I know... it sucks).  It connecting via the MS OLE DB provider for Oracle (9i client) New server: ESX VMware Server with 2 CPU's assigned, 8 GB of ram connected to large HP SAN.  CPU, ram and IO's have all been ruled out as the problem.  We've tried varying network cards with different results so we havent ruled that out yet.  Its connecting via the Oracle provider for OLE DB (11G 64 bit client) The linked server is an Oracle 9i fully patched server.  All three are on the same network backbone. Running a simple select * query on both servers returns the same number of rows (~76 000) .  It takes ~1:20 on the new server and ~0:20 on the old server. In looking at the wait stati

Query on XML datatype in SQL Server 2008

Hi All, In table I have column with XML datatype. I can able to read the below XML tag. SET   @Title = CAST(@XMLContent.query('data(root/chemicalName)') AS VARCHAR(50)) <root><chemicalName>Sulphuric acid</chemicalName></root> but how can I read (in SQL Server 2008) with multiple rows in it, and how to know the list of child nodes and data of it dynamically? <Root> <Row> < CurrencyCode>GBP</CurrencyCode> < CurrencyName>POUND (STERLING)</CurrencyName> </ Row> <Row> < CurrencyCode>INR</CurrencyCode> < CurrencyName>Rupee</CurrencyName> </ Row></

SSRS 2008 R2 - Query builder freezes and needs to be shut down Report Builder 3 when attempting quie

Hi, In SSRS, using Report Builder 3.0 (SSRS R2), after choosing a Report Model as the report's embedded data source, launched "Query Deisinger…" from GUI to build data source in report.  First 1-2 attempts at querying underlying data source (Oracle back-end), are successful, but later attempts freeze application to the point where application freezes and overall Report Builder application needs to be forcibly shut-down. This system freeze has occurred when referencing tables containing a very small number of records as well as larger data sets.  Suspect that application freezing may be caused by timing-out of connection to back-end database. but I am not sure. Any suggestion to solve this issue? Thanks   Environment - Distributed deployment Server1(report_srv) --Windows server 2003R2 64bit, Installed sql server 2008R2 reporting service, configuration tools Server2 (report_db_srv) --windows server 2003r2 64bit, sql server 2005 for report server database

BIDS Query Designer very slow in VS 2008

I am in the process of upgrading my Report Server projects from 2005 to 2008.  These reports use an Analysis Services 2005 data source and have queries that are anywhere from 20 to 100 lines of MDX.  After upgrading a report, when I open or save a dataset in the Query Designer, it takes up to 20 seconds.  In 2005, this would happen almost instantly. Running SQL Server Profiler, I see that there is an extensive number (600+) of Discover events going on with the Analysis Services server while the Query Designer loads. My version of Visual Studio is 9.0.30729.1 SP and I am running Windows XP SP2. Thanks, Mitch

Query Analyzer

Hi, I encountered a problem which the result different compare in query analyzer with result calling from user-defined function. I describe more on my problem. I have a stored procedure name SP1 and a user-defined function name Function1. When I copy out the Function1 run in query analyzer, the result is as my expected. While when the SP1 call Function1, the result is wrong. And I double check the code at both side are same. And even I copy the code at query analyzer which return correct result to the Function1. But the result still wrong. Anyone know why? Thanks.   Regards, ling

SQL server management studio 2008 freezes when running a query to Grid result

Hello, I've got problems when I run a Query to a grid result using SQL server management studio 2008 under W7 pro. When I execute the query, the first part of the grid returns, but then it freezes. The query should present a double resultset and contains approx 6100 records, devided over 2 grids. Strange enough, the query runs fine when I export to TXT or to a file. It seems though that the problem is building the grid. When it occurs I cannot end the application bij shutting down de SSMS window, but have to kill the Ssms.exe. In task manager I see only 25% CPU usage and approx 20% memory usage. Nothing exiting there I guess. Suggestions anybody?
