Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The SQL Server Management Studio should have been installed with SQL 2005. You can use that to manage your database.

If it wasn’t installed (it’ll be listed in the Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 program group). If it isn’t there launch the SQL Server installer again and run through the installer. When you get to the page which has the list of services select the management tools which should be the last one of the list.

    I agree with Mr. Denny. Try his suggestion on looking of up the SQL Management Studio. I am curious, are you working with SQL express? If yes, then download the version of the sql express that comes packages with SQL Management studio.
