What is ISQL/w?

A graphical user interface (GUI) tool in Microsoft SQL Server that lets you directly enter transact-SQL statements and system-stored procedures into SQL Server for administering the system and querying databases. ISQL/w can be used to graphically analyze transact-SQL queries.


ISQL/w is a SQL Server 6.5 tool that is provided with SQL Server 7 for backward compatibility. With version 7, you can use the SQL Server Query Analyzer tool instead, which is integrated into the Microsoft Management Console (MMC).
