    Very good question. I had a feeling the answer would be either

    SQL Server Database Tools or DataSmith. I chose the latter to score 1 point.

    Nice question, thanks.

    What is it with Microsoft and giving names to products?

    Beats me 🙂

    That's why I thought it would be a fun answer to ask.

    I just couldn't believe Datadude was an actual name!

    I can't imagine any of these as a real name 😀

    Some names looked okay, some looked odd but plausible, so that narrowed it down to 'datasmith'.

    That, or it was a bit of a lucky guesss!

    Good question.

    I have confusion between Datasmith & DBPro because all others I know & installed, so guessed datasmith 🙂

    Thanks

    Bummer, I (probably like some others) googled all the answers, but I didn't really analyse the results well enough (at all really).

    Therefore as I found results for Datasmith and, I felt, the results for SQL Server Database Tools were a bit disjointed and irregular, I went for the wrong one.

    Ho hum... 🙂

    I know, I can't believe it, either. I got lucky by guessing. Part of the guess was taking a chance that Datadude was one of the real code names.

    Hi all,

    Just to be clear guys. "Datadude" is one of the colloquial names that I mentioned in the question. its not a formal name, nor even a codename, its just what the feature set has invariably come to be known as down the years.

    cheers

    I recognised some of the names, was slightly suspicious of the one including 2005 but reckoned that maybe the 2005 stuff just got an upgrade to interface to the 2010 team server, thought datadude was probably the culprit but also thought that DataSmith was someone else's (not MS) trading name; both of those couldn't be right, so I used MSDN search and immediately discovered hordes of people in the support forums referring to the tools as datadude and then knew it was the other.

    If I had to get this one wrong at least I picked the most popular wrong answer. 🙂

    What is it with the sexism at Microsoft assuming that SQL work is a "man's job".

    Where is the "DataDudette" version? LOL
