Project Description
The SQL Server Web Query application allows you to run queries on any SQL Server database from anywhere via the web. You can also save queries for later use, or recall stored procedures in the database to run. There are also some very basic intellisense-like tools in the application to make writing queries fast and easy, automatically retrieving table and column names in the database, and completing T-SQL and ODBC statements for you.
Whether you’re at home, at work, or on the go with a laptop or internet-capable cell phone, SQL Server Web Query makes it quick and easy to build and execute queries on a remote SQL Server database.
