Is it possible to access the queries and procedures in a file created by SQL Server without installing SQL Server? Problem is that I am having problems to install the SQL server / Express version.
When all else fails - always try to open files in notepad and see what happens.
In this case, .sql files definitely can be opened with notepad - they are just text files. The extension is just there to give you the ability to double-click on them and by default open in Management Studio (or whatever you want to use to edit SQL files).
