Lynn, thank you for your response. We are not using Access databases, we are using SQL databases. My users are very qualified T-SQL coders in this case. The organization does not allow individual users to download anything and it takes a while to get them to do it for us, so I go back to my original question, which is whether I can use SSMS for SQL version 2014 to write queries against a table with a columnstore index. Please advise.
