I trade between SQLYog and SQL Exporer plugin for Eclipse. The former only
shows 1 result set at a time (boo) while the latter shows more than one
(yeah!) The former doesn't let you sort columns from your own query, only
the table preview. The latter doesn't let you sort the columns.
Neither one is perfect.
