I'm building a DB for someone as a favor and whilst I'm perfectly OK to create a DB in Azure SQL for them and do the requisite TSQL coding they require I do also need to give them a client based way to access the data that involves no non-SQL coding from me.

Ideally this would be a light weight alternative to SSMS that is compatibile with Azure. That way I can give them a series of scripts and paramtised SPs to run. Can someone recommend something that works please?

Thanks for reading

Have a look at LINQPad -- SQL Azure is supported as well. – Kin Jun 20 '13 at 16:26

Perhaps SQL Azure Database Manager? Requires a browser, internet connection, and Silverlight.
