  1. e.g.

    declare @1 table (a int, b int)
    declare @2 table (a INT, b int)

    SELECT a, b FROM
    @1 a
    CROSS JOIN @2 b

    Here there are 2 possibilities for columns a and b, however SQL prompt only suggests the second one. Both should be shown and the user given the chance to choose.

    SQL Prompt does not recognize the ambiguity nor alert the user to it (although Microsoft Intellisense does flag the ambiguity). This can result in the user selecting the wrong alias (since only one is presented, apparently the last one found) which can result in hard-to-debug…

  2. It would be nice to have a setting per database in SQL Prompt that would allow us to set an alias to tablename mapping and these settings can be shared / stored in source control for other developers.

    When we run the qualify object name operation it could look at this dictionary and automatically inject an new alias for an old alias or table/view with no alias.

    This allows us to have consistently alias'd tables across all sql objects in source control.

  4. As SQL Prompt user, I want to be able to perform a qualify object names operation on a directory of views, tables, sprocs, etc.

    Currently, one must open a sql file in SSMS first then run the qualify object names operation on each file. This is extremely time consuming. We are trying to improve our code quality and readabily by following best practices.

  5. Please could you add a feature that parses a query that has already been written, adds aliases for tables that don't already have them and update columns to use those aliases.

    This is because I often get pieces of code which are partially aliased and I have to go through updating the missing ones. Thanks.

  6. I have tables that repeat in different schemas, for example Supplier.Location and Customer.Location. I'd really like auto-alias to include the schema when generating the alias. Supplier.Location should be SL and Customer.Location should be CL. Instead I end up with L and L2, which is not as clear.

    Ideally, I'd prefer the schema characters to be lowercase and the table to be uppercase. Using sL and cL would make my query even more readable.
