Does anyone knows where to find a CAML query builder that I can use for Office 365, Sharepoint Online? (if there exists one)

The 2 popular CAML query tools are Strammit CamlViewer and U2U CAML Builder. They both say they're for 2007, but it's been proven they work fine for 2010 versions as well.

Edit: and the BIWUG CAML Designer works for O365 too.

The problems with these are that I can't login in Office 365 ... – Ruben Herman Jan 25 '12 at 14:21
U2U you should be able to as you point it to a URL and can provide login credentials. – Eric Alexander Jan 25 '12 at 14:24
But I also need to fill in a domain. Any idea what to fill in there? – Ruben Herman Jan 25 '12 at 14:32
when you login on the web site, do you login like something\username? if so, that something is the domain. on my public 2010 site, it's ems\username, so using U2U, I'd put in ems as the domain. – Eric Alexander Jan 25 '12 at 14:40
No, to login we use an e-mail address and a password. We don't have to fill in a domain – Ruben Herman Jan 25 '12 at 14:41

shameless self-plugs without disclosure are frowned upon, even if it is open source. – Ray Mar 27 '13 at 14:26
