A VS.NET data project is a project inside visual studio for storing .sql files. You can associate it with a db connection for running your scripts against.

I'm using them a bit at the moment, I have all my stored procs inside VS.NET as .sql files, I can edit them and run them just like in Query Analyzer.

One thing it is missing is the cool shortcuts like Alt + F1 for "sp_help object". But with VS.NET's macro language you are free to extend it however you like. I have a few macros to replace my Query Analyzer habits.

Merkins got it. I find it more efficient when using version control such as VSS.
