SQL server

Convert xml query plan to graphical query plan.

In SQL 2005 you can get an XML version of a query plan by running select * from sys.dm_exec_query_plan(plan_handle). You can convert this XML file into a graphical query plan. Simply save the file with an extension of .sqlplan. If you currently have query plans saved as XML files, simply rename them to .sqlplan and you can view them in SSMS in a graphical format.
