  1. Have the ability to delete duplicate scripts in the Tab History. Example I may open a stored procedure to look at it or modify then close and then it is stored in the Tab History as Closed. But then in a few days or so I open the same store procedure and do the same thing it is now in the Tab History also. I have made no changes to either day it is open then closed but, it's in the Tab History twice. Now think about this over a few months. That Tab History grows with duplicate scripts.

  2. It would be very handy if there was a way when you open a server in Object Explorer that it pops up with notes about that server. For instance, there is a job we have on EVERY server in our environment except one random server that no one hardly thinks about. But if that job is there, then it messes up things. It would be great if when anyone on our team who has redgate sql prompt opens that server they get a reminder that we add on there that says some special note (in this case “DO NOT ADD…

  3. Currently SQL Prompt displays suggestions for auto-completing literal strings. These are never valid suggestions so can this be turned off (or at least have an option to turn this off)?

  4. Please could you add an option to check for invalid objects in multiple databases and to be able to export the results in either a single file or 1 per database. It's a real pain doing 1 at a time and manually selecting the results to do a copy/paste.

  5. Have Formal SQL Actions be included in the formatting style file. This way when a team shared a standard we do not have to share the file and screen shots of the Options menu to manually sync to maintain team consistency on code checkin.

  6. Hi, this is not related to SQL Prompt only, but to the update process in general.
    As our company firewall is blocking the link in Help "Check for updates ...", I have to submit the "Download a 28 days trial" form and download the full "SQLToolbelt.exe".
    Which is also blocked by the company proxy rules. :-(
    So I have to download the file on my private PC and then copy it to my business machine.
    I assume, my company is not the only one with such precautionary measures.
    Maybe you can implement additional options to download updates.

  7. Please can the "Add quotes and commas" action conform to the current active style's Commas setting?

    So if the setting is "Place commas before items", then the action should also place the commas before.

    At the moment, I have to run a Format SQL action after using Add quotes and commas, which is cumbersome.

  8. SQL Prompt should fully support Azure SQL Managed Instances. This includes offering suggestions for all objects (such as system functions, tables, views, etc) which are usable in Managed Instances. For example, CURRENTTIMEZONE and CURRENTTIMEZONE_ID (which were recently implemented in SQL Prompt, but only for Azure SQL Database). All other functions I've tried seem to be working fine, but it would be nice to know that Azure SQL Managed Instance is officially supported by SQL Prompt.

  9. https://www.brentozar.com/archive/2011/06/fixing-sql-server-management-studios-tab-text/

    Brent Ozar wrote this tip back in 2011 and I cant believe i've been struggling with the horrible SSMS tabs every day for my whole career. would be great if SQL prompt has a button to change these settings for you or defaults these options when you install it.

    the main reason being that they are buried away and if I wasnt aware of them then i'm sure many others aren't.

    at the end of every day i have about 10 tabs open and i just close the whole lot because it's too hard and to go through them…

  10. Currently in Visual Studio the option to "Enclose identifiers within square brackets []" option will be set to true on startup requiring a user to turn it off every time they load Visual Studio.

    This option when set to false should remain that way even after a restart of Visual Studio the same way it does in SSMS.

  11. When joining two tables, you today get the option to join on known references or identical column names.

    What I would like to see is an extra join option in the suggestions, if both the columns are NULLable:

    SELECT * FROM table1
    INNER JOIN table2 ON (table2.ref1ID = table1.ref1ID OR (table2.ref1ID IS NULL AND table1.ref1ID IS NULL)

    The above example might seem like rubbish at first! But sometimes when you have composite keys, one of the columns in the key might very well be a NULLable value.

    So a more valid example would be:

    SELECT * FROM table1
    INNER JOIN…

  12. There's an obscure coding bug that I've seen multiple times in my 20 years of working with SQL Server, and it can be particularly difficult to spot as it doesn't cause a syntax error, yet the havoc it wreaks can be widespread. Consider the following scenario with two tables; they are similar but have differing column names. Now say I want to insert records from StagingTable into FinalTable, but only if they don't already exist there. Yes, there are other ways to handle this like Merge, Left Outer Join etc., but this is still commonly used and you will no…

  13. Similar to the "Prefixes to ignore" option in Options > Inserted code > Aliases, could we have a "Postfixes to ignore" option to allow use to set words at the end of a tablename to ignore when generating aliases.

    Currently I have to keep the custom aliases list up to date, whereas this would do that automatically.

  14. It would be very convenient when going through legacy scripts to be able to hit a shortcut combination to switch the order of an equality statement, for example in a JOIN clause

    For example, with the cursor on "A.ID = User.AccountID":

    SELECT U.Username
    FROM Account AS A
    INNER JOIN Users AS U ON A.ID = U.AccountID AND U.Active = 1
    WHERE A.ID = @AccountID AND U.ID = @UserID

    Becomes
    SELECT U.Username
    FROM Account AS A
    INNER JOIN Users AS U ON U.AccountID = A.ID AND U.Active = 1 --note, only clause where cursor is is switched.
    WHERE A.ID = @AccountID…

  18. Add support so SQL Prompt will work in SSMS when connected to MS Dataverse / CDS (Common Data Service - Dynamics really).

    Right now, it fails since the (meta)data exposed probably isn't quite as complete as on a "full-scale" SQL Server database

  19. Please create a rule that detects when the data type of input parameters, local variables, and/or expressions do not match the data type of the column in a predicate.

    For example, if we have

    a Person table, with column LastName varchar(60) NOT NULL, and

    in the body of a stored procedure which has an input parameter defined as @LastName nvarchar(100)... and a predicate like WHERE Person.LastName = @LastName [join, apply, correlation, and functions also need this]

    It would be wonderful - save me massive amounts of time - if SQLPrompt could flag this and help reduce implicit conversions.

    Thank you!
