Tracy J Powell: "Thank you VERY much for the quick and helpful response. I will definitely upgrade as soon as possible. Your products are great and I use them daily".
Alex Torin: "Several months ago I downloaded the trial versions of several Microsoft SQL administration tools that I was able to find using google. I had considerable trouble with most of them crashing... but using your product I was able to isolate and solve the problems I was having. I decided to add it to my toolkit and have recommended it to a few others".
