My question is about a specific functionality in Microsoft's release of SQL Server client: SSMS 17.4? Is it still possible to R-click on a table and choose "Select Top 1000 Rows'?

It is still a working functionality ie. it returns top 1000 rows? Sorry, I ask. I am facing an tech support group that will not fix this broken functionality in SQL Server 2017 SSMS on a virtual computer that I am unable to troubleshoot based on claim that SSMS 17.4 doesn't even include this functionality 'so it must be a bug' and is a bad practice.

If the SSMS install were on my own laptop I would repair .net framework as a start (based on forums I have read for this issue).

I use top 1000 a lot in dev environment.

Sure. It opens a new tab in SSMS, pastes the SELECT TOP (1000) ... query in and executes it, returning the correct number of rows. Appears to be working as expected.

Cool
