I can’t believe that Microsoft still hasn’t made this easier to find! I guess they’re just assuming that everyone wants to use their slow visual query editor. For those of us that would rather just bang out a simple query in a SQL editor though, this is for you:
Out of the box, how to get to SQL View:
- Click on the CREATE menu.
- Click on Query Design.
- Close the Show Table popup window.
- Click on SQL View.
I’m still looking for a shortcut or easier way to get to this though…
