MSDE tool recommendations

By rfr123 ·
Hello.
I'm interested in any comparisons/recommendations for free or inexpensive SQL tools to be used with MSDE. Basically what I'm looking for is a package that most closely mirrors Enterprise Mgr. and Query Analyzer without the big ticket cost (DTS is one consideration that we have). I've looked at the MS partners recommendations found on http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/partners/default.asp
and wanted to know what other folks have experienced.

Thank you very much for your help.

Sure

A very handy, inexpensive utility is MSDE Admin, available at http://www.msde.biz . It offers much of the capability of EM, but with a price tag in the $20 range. It includes a free query analyzer, but, IMO, their QA is junk. I much prefer Query Express, which is free, with source code, from http://www.albahari.com . It connects with Oracle, PostgreSQL, MSDE, SQL Server, and Access!

... is Toad. I used it with oracle and m$ sql server. Only disatvatage is the 60-days - period.
But it's free.
