  1. Here is an example of a search of what is returned if I search the following text "acftfltinfo"

    SELECT *
    FROM Test.DBO.VWFLTINFO3 (NOLOCK)
    -- From acftfltinfo Removed
    where SchdDepDate>= @FromDate

    But this code has been updated to the new view, If I was able to exclude comment text out of my search then this text would not return. I would I
    to exclude this object because I do not care about it.

    Also for the most part the view dependencies does not work for all case since it will only look in…

  2. For example on a stored procedure, it's time consuming to first click select object in explorer, then right click on the object, then click modify. For a table, same, but clicking design. Plus sometimes if the database sproc isn't expanded yet its slow as the left side menu bounces around expanding first...

  5. Add "Find Next/Previous" buttons in the Text area, so, it will jump to the next occurrence of the searched term (highlighted) in the text.

  6. There's already been a suggestion to add next/previous matches, and this doesn't replace that, but helps to show where in the script the next match is (a bit like the difference highlighter on the vertical scroll bar in SQL Compare)

  7. Give the users the ability to set default databases to search in, so that when ever the SQL Search is done, it saves them the time to select their mostly searched databases

  8. You cannot open multiple search tabs in SSMS. This might be by design, but the ability to have multiple search tabs open at the same time rather than having to open new SSMS windows would make the product more flexible and allow easier searching into "child" issues found from the first search result.

  12. Do not start indexing automatically but let user to start it.
    Our two database servers contain many databases. When I switch from one to another, the index is automatically started with the database dropdown box selected all databases as default. It crashes my SSMS a few times or when it did not crash, I need to wait long time to wait it to finish the indexing.

  13. When I change server SQL Search indexes all databases on that server before I can do anything, this takes ~ 1 min.

    Please, if you could preselect only the database that is default for the current user on the server.

    This would speed up my work considerably.
    This was not an issue before multiple database search.

    Best regards.

  14. Looking up any values in any DB with the brute force approach.
    --This feature will look at every table and every column for a string, number, or datetime value, etc
    --It supports begins with, ends with, and contains for strings and returns a query of results
    --including the count of total matches on the table and the sql needed to query that result up.
    --It's also support multiple options like contains, begins with, ends with, and exact match.

    --Secondly it also supports number and date searches, xml etc.

    I have already implemented above features with a stored procedure, and hope…

  15. I would like to see history of my search and to be able to re use it fast, right away in search box. The idea is that almost all the time I’m working with 2-4 tables, SP and views and it will be helpful to me to get last 10 used search text at once. A text is selected when I do Navigate to Object function.

    The list could be like combobox or like auto complete /with text that has been used already/.

    I’m sure this will be in help for all persons using you great search tool. I’m using…

  18. Would be good that SQL Search authenticated through Azure Active Directory - Universal with MFA.

    SQL Search version: 3.4.2.2567

  20. In search result windows , multiselect is possible. On right click give option to script out selected objects.

    Workaround i use for now:
    What i usually do is open sql compare alongside and then select results from a single database and compare them to an empty database, script all out, and then replace create statements with alter.
