Hi All,
I was able to create my SQL Server connection and I can navigate and see my tables within the Data Source Explorer, however, I'm unable to select my SQL Server connection profile from the SQL Editor window.  I'm only seeing my Teradata connection profiles. Thoughts?

Hugo, We have provided a customized SQL Editor for Teradata 'Teradata SQL Editor'. You will want to open the SQL file using the other SQL Editor, referred to simply as 'SQL File Editor'.  Right click on the SQL file in the Project Explorer and choose 'Open With> and choose the 'SQL File Editor'. This will provide a Type list of all the possible vendors and versions to choose your SQL Server connection profile.
