I don't own a copy of MS SQL Server, but I've been given access to an instance on a remote machine. I need to log in, explore the database, and do some queries.
What admin client should I use? I'd rather not pay for anything. I downloaded MS SQL Server Management Studio Express, but it gives me a "can't connect to this version of SQL Server" error.
Here's the actual error message:
This version of Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express can only be used to connect to SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 servers.
