IDE for Sql Server

Any recommendations?

Query Analyser I have found to be a primitive piece of rubbish.

I've tried Squirrel-Sql, and although it supports nifty functions (like code complete, returning metadata and rowcounts) it has the annoying habit of endlessly writing to its heapdump logfile until I kill the process if it encounters errors / sql statements that generate large result sets. These errors can be as simple as the connection to the DB no longer existing. Latterly I tried an outer join on two table with 1 million+ rows apiece. THis should be manageable, yes?

SQuirrel SQL doesn't give me this problem. Could you not just set the log level to fatal and the problem would go away?

That aside, I can't think of an editor that wouldn't struggle if you are trying to return records sets containing millions of results.
