I have a MS SQL database with some very, very sensitive data. If anything gets broken, half of the planet will fall into chaos. Almost :-).
I have a database user with some restricted permissions, but not restricted enough, I could do some damage if I made a mistake. Basicaly I just need to do a SELECT from some tables with some fancy sorting, filtering, joining etc. So I would like to use some client software (I am used to HeidiSQL). However I am really afraid of some stupid click on a wrong button and damaging the data.
Is there any way to restrict my own permissions for just one database session? Or is there any safe tool, which provides read-only mode? HeidiSQL does not, unfortunately.
