Opening sql files opens new instance of SQL Management Studio

Hi Folks,

I'm sure this has been answered before but all my searches for this problem don't find what I need. It's a quirk but driving me nuts.

If I have sql management studio open and I view a sql file from Vault, or double-click it in explorer, it always opens a new instance of mgmt studio. I open 5 sql files, 5 instances of mgmt studio.

How do I tell my system to reuse mgmt studio to open sql files if it's open?

Thanks in Advance,


What version of SQL Server Management Studio do you have?

9.00.1399 = RTM
9.00.2047 = SP1
9.00.3042 = SP2
