Any chance of getting a paid for Lite version as I’ve requested in the past?
The only thing I could use full functionality on that isn’t in the Freeware is the exporting capabilities. I use the export to SQL a lot for ad hoc data fixes and LOVE the export to excel instance. I would pay for a Lite version that was like the Freeware but also allowed all the export features of the full version.
I’d be able to justify to my boss a “lite” version of SQL Server if it had everything the Freeware had with the “Edit: snippets, predictive typing, syntax highlighting” of the full version. I just don’t need everything the pro version has and can’t justify $700 for that. But $150 or so for a lite version I could justify.
I’ve used Toad for MySQL for over 10 years. I love Toad for SQL Server and want to support Quest Software, but $650 for the full pro version is just too much as I don’t use most of the functionality that comes with it. I use Toad more as a replacement for SSMS. So a Lite version would be great.
