Difference between Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer

Hi All,

What are the pros and cons between using Enterprise Manager or Query
Analyzer for my queries.

Currently I use Enterprise Manager because I prefer the interface and
only use Query Analayzer when queries time out in Enterprise Manager,
but I'm sure there must be more to it.

Regards,
Ciarán

Query Analyzer is a tool that I use daily, and it's always open on my
desktop. Enterprise Manager I only start if I need to work with Agent jobs.

As far as I know EM does not even have a query window. Probably you are
using the Query Designer, which may look nice, but which may add junk to
your queries. And there is a whole lot of things you do in it. Only in a
query window in Query Analyzer (or a command-line tool like OSQL), you can
use all T-SQL statements.
