A Little SSMS Wish

By Jen McCown, 2010/10/27

IN SQL Server 2000, we didn’t have the fancy-schmancy Management Studio…we had Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer, and we liked em, by gum.  You know, give or take.

I am very fond of SSMS, but there’s one small thing I miss about QA and the olden days: You could open a query window without connecting to a database.  I liked that, I miss that.  Why, O mighty Microsoft, make that a requirement? If I’m developing something and want to look at an old version, or compare to a different query, why force me to make a connection for each and every little query window?  Meh.

Happy days anyway,
Jen McCown
