    Hello all, I've been asked to help out on a project that uses Microsoft SQL as the DB. Can someone recommend a good OSX client to connect to mssql? I will need to run basic queries, possibly create some Sprocs (which can be done in an editor), and have general access to the DB. I'm not a fan of Dual Booting, or Parallels simply to use Microsoft's SQL Manager. What have you guys used?

    Navicat is offering products for most DB systems (including SQL Server).

    Personally, I use Navicat Premium Essentials which includes support for MySQL, SQL Server, SQLite, PostgreSQL, Oracle. Although I tend to use phpMyAdmin to with MySQL....

    Available on the AppStore.

    Thanks for your reply. I'll take a look at Navicat more closely. It looks promising. I gave RazorSQL a try and it was pretty good, but the $99 price tag may be a bit steep if I can find an alternative.

    There's also a free option. SqlDeveloper from oracle is free and can connect to mssql as well as other databases.

    For Microsoft SQL Server, I've had the best luck with Oracle SQL Developer, which is free.

    For MySQL, I've used Sequel Pro, which is donationware.
