      MySQL Workbench. It's not too bad once you get used to it - much more stable than the old MySQL Administrator/MySQL Query Browser two-app combination.

        Nick (or anyone) is Visual Studio - including the free DB Express version - any good for MySQL?

          Never tried it myself - I only ever run VS (or indeed Windows) for brief sessions testing stuff in IE.

          Anyone?

            Ah but if you're talking really big computers then you'll find most of them are either running DB2 or Adabas, Oracle are nowadays just a bit player (I've used on them) and either too damn expensive or non-existent support.
            Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

              I don't know Oracle would want to be discussed as competitors to MySQL... I thought Oracle and MSSQL were competing at the medium-high level with DB2 above them. However I've never actually come across a project using DB2 so who knows.

              Not a dig at MySQL though - merely commenting that "medium high" in DB terms is pretty gigantic these days.
