Vers. 2.0.6 won't start up at all on my iMac 2007, Leopard. Had to use Time Machine to restore version 2.0.5. Here's the error from CONSOLE:

Reason: Incompatible library version: SQLGrinder requires version 1.0.0 or later, but OmniBase provides version 0.0.0

Exited abnormally: Trace/BPT trap
[Version 2.0.6]

That fixed it alright. SQLGrinder is editor of choice.

Requires a serial number to run. There is no demo mode or demo serial number, therefore "buy before you try."

I found this program simpler to use than either Aqua Datastudion (which had problems with queries returning > 1000 records) or SQL4X Manager. I did use SQL4X manager for their link to MS's MS SQL driver (SQLGrinder's link pointed me to the wrong place) and followed SQL4X's instructions for installing the driver for all users and SQLGrinder recognized it immediately.

The syntax highlighting isn't perfected yet, but that's fine.

Files are saved with UNIX (lf) line endings. There is no Mac (crlf) option. BBEdit can fix that.

The SQL Query Library feature could use a little refinement. Haven't figured out what "Snapshot" does.

Program works better (for me) than any of the others I've found that are compatible with MS SQL Server.

This new version is having problems with both Apple's Remote Desktop and Timbuktu 8.5. The screen is off-set to the lower left (you cannot access the start bar) and it ignores most mouse clicks.

Previous version worked as you would expect.
