  4. Press CTRL+1 to open the diagram pane, press CTRL+2 to open the criteria pane, and then press CTRL+3 to open the SQL pane.

  5. Right-click in the diagram pane (top center pane), click Add Table to open the Add Table dialog box, and click Views. While holding the CTRL key, select the Configuration Manager views to add to the query; click Add; and then click Close.

  6. Design and test the SQL statement using Query Designer. For more information about using Query Designer, search for Query Designer in the SQL Server 2005 Books Online (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=60544)
