SQL Server Management Studio Express Review

SQL Server Management Studio Express is fine GUI for manipulating your database. Unfortunately, the problems I've been having are due to the complete lack of robustness. Try copying over 500 records to your table via the cut and paste Excel method and you should expect the program to freeze up and maybe have success. I would recommend using your own stored procedure (SPROC) for data uploading tasks. It is more cumbersome, but at least it works for large data handling.
