Reviews for this release

Just browsing through the documentation for 10 minutes helped me understand some of the problems that I have been having and helped to solve them. This is a must have for anyone who uses BIDS!

so far so good! One of the most outstanding VS add-ins I've ever had the pleasure to use. Chock full of features soooo useful, you wonder how MS didn't consider them requirements to the product!

BIDS Helper is the *one* truly must-have add-in for BIDS. I won't develop Microsoft SQL Server BI solutions without it.

An essential add-in for anyone working with the Microsoft Business Intelligence tool set.
