I’ve had a lot of folks ask me about inlcuding a new feature for SQL Server Management Studio, only to point out that we have it already. That’s understandable – SSMS has a lot of features, and if you’re not using it all day, it’s impossible to learn them all.
But if you have a few minutes, take the SQL Server Management Studio tutorial that is built right in. To find it, just open SSMS, and then click Help in the menu bar. From the drop-down menu that appears, select Tutorial. You’ll get access to four lessons that will take you through the basics.
