Really usefull ! SQLInForm will be especially usefull for me.

Another free tool I find extremely usefull for scripting table data is SQLScripter :

http://www.sqlscripter.com/

Can really save some time and has a great interface - requires the .NET runtime.

two additions (to a useful list):

1. SQuirreL - a true multi platform SQL Client. Supports SQL Server, Oracle, Access, MySQL, Firebird, PostgreSQL, Sybase,Informix, Excel, text files, and more....from ONE interface. It's not the ideal tool, but it is good, easy to use, great (free) support and if you're working with different databases, there is nothing else around that I know of...

http://squirrel-sql.sourceforge.net

2. Forget Yahoo - though an improvement over MSN, it's a million miles away from GMail (which includes integrated chat window)

I think it's pretty good, but a couple of other additions that are useful:

The microsoft health and history monitoring tool.... it's pretty slick and is very helpful when it comes to monitoring your servers health.

The tools that I have tried out from here are awsome - Especially the link with the 46 best free -> Quite nice for someone who ventures out of just the DBA tasks.

One thing though : I can't access the fullsun link http://www.fullsun.net/

Is there an alternative link??

Excellent article, thanks David for taking the time to create it!  I've only used one or two of these, looking forward to trying the others.
