  1. The options to "Only load suggestions for certain databases" and "Don;t load suggestions for certain databases" are nice, but it'd be really useful to also be able to include or exclude on a per schema basis.

  2. Hi there. Would it be possible to program a feature that is
    present in Visual Studio (I think ReSharper brings it
    into VS) which enables a programmer to select/move among
    parts of a word based on where the capital letters are? (CTRL+arrow)
    Say you have a variable called @ThisIsMyVariable.
    If you place the cursor at the end of the word and then
    press CTRL+<Left Arrow>, then it’d be nice if the cursor
    jumped to the beginnig of the next capital letter instead
    of the next word as is usual. This feature is very helpful in VS and I think it’d…

  4. Very often i have copied a list of items i want to query in an IN() statement from the database, for example:

    abc
    def
    ghi
    jkl

    and I want to format it like this:

    'abc'
    'def'
    'ghi'
    'jkl'

    or better yet:

    'abc'
    

    , 'def'
    , 'ghi'
    , 'jkl'

    Being able to highlight, right click, and select an option do do this, would be incredibly helpful.

  5. It would be nice to have the code within a BEGIN TRAN and COMMIT be indented.

    BEGIN TRAN
    <ssss>INSERT....
    <ssss>UPDATE....
    COMMIT TRAN

  7. Code Analysis released in 9.0 is awesome! But I turn off a lot of the rules for day-to-day work. I know not to release production code with "select *" in it... But not all the devs do... so I have to click these rules back on to get Code Analysis to help me when I'm doing review.

    Could we have profiles for CA like in Format SQL? Better still, could we have the config of these profiles in flat files? I could version & share different profiles with devs - allowing them to check rules I'm going to check anyway…

    Hello,

    We added this feature recently (in SQL Prompt 9.1.0.4138).

    Now it is possible to save your settings file in a shared folder for the team to use or switch between different settings files. This is accessible via the Prompt menu : SQL Prompt > Manage Code Analysis Rules….

    Let me know if you find it helpful.

    Kind regards,
    Alicja

  8. SQL Prompt v9.0.2.3223 use of Code Analysis has stopped the tooltip for showing structural details.

    ie: statement like SELECT a,b,c FROM dbo.TableRequiringLock WITH (ROWLOCK, XLOCK) WHERE ID = @key

    will just show TABLE HINT used when hovering over table name as opposed to showing the structure.

  10. Had this with SSMS Tools Pack but upon migrating to 2012 I ditched it in favor of SQL Prompt. The only thing I'm missing is a log of my Query History, time-stamped and searchable.

  11. Any query where "AT TIME ZONE" is used (new feature in SS '16), the Format SQL throws and error.

    "SQL Prompt was unable to complete this operation. Problem areas have been highlighted"

    The highlighting start from "AT TIME ZONE..."

    Thank you

  12. When using OPENJSON with the WITH clause, the formatter does not recognize the WITH clause as valid SQL. This should format but throws an error:

    DECLARE @JSONString NVARCHAR(MAX) SET @JSONString = N'{"Vendors":[{"VendorNumber":200,"VendorName":"Vendor1"},{"VendorNumber":201,"Vendo2"},{"VendorNumber":202,"VendorName":"Vendor3"}]}'

    SELECT VendorNumber ,
    VendorName
    FROM OPENJSON(@JSONString, '$.Vendors')
    WITH (VendorNumber INT '$.VendorNumber', VendorName VARCHAR(50) '$.VendorName')

    SQL Prompt 5.3.6 was released in October 2012 with support for Visual Studio 2012.

  14. Hi!

    Would be good to control the formatting of the OPTION clause.
    I personally prefer to have it on a new line

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    Production.Product p
    LEFT JOIN
    Production.ProductSubcategory s
    ON
    p.ProductSubcategoryID = s.ProductSubcategoryID
    WHERE
    p.ProductSubcategoryID = 14 OPTION(QUERYTRACEON 8757);
    GO

    --should look like

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    Production.Product p
    LEFT JOIN
    Production.ProductSubcategory s
    ON
    p.ProductSubcategoryID = s.ProductSubcategoryID
    WHERE
    p.ProductSubcategoryID = 14
    OPTION(QUERYTRACEON 8757);
    GO

    Thanks!

  15. When inserting code to execute a stored procedure, SQL Prompt currently automatically generates input variables of the correct data type, e.g.:

    EXECUTE ETL.spLoad_DimPerson
    @LatestLoadDate = '2016-06-21 18:51:43', -- datetime2
    @TargetRowsInserted = 0, -- int
    @TargetRowsUpdated = 0, -- int
    @TargetRowsDeleted = 0 -- int

    However, the syntax does not seem to recognize OUTPUT parameters. When I ask SSMS to generate a query for me by right-clicking and choosing 'Execute stored procedure...', it gives me the following:

    DECLARE @return_value int,
    @TargetRowsInserted int,
    @TargetRowsUpdated int,
    @TargetRowsDeleted int

    EXEC @returnvalue = [ETL].[spLoadDimPerson]
    @LatestLoadDate = '2005-06-21 18:41:59',
    @TargetRowsInserted = @TargetRowsInserted OUTPUT,
    @TargetRowsUpdated…

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    We’ve reviewed this as part of our UserVoice triage.

    Currently this feature is available in SQL Prompt.
    The OUTPUT and EXECUTE statements are auto generated.

    We don’t support the SELECT statement as part of this feature.

    Please feel free to raise a new feature request if this is something you would like.

    Kind Regards,
    Prompt Team

  16. In SQL Server 2016 it is now possible to calculate between timezones. Currently it gives me an error, when I want to format it. The syntax is also not allowed at the moment.

  18. I used to be able to format selected code, as long as it was valid. Now when I select code that is valid in a larger script that has invalid code it does not format the selected code at all. If the invalid code immediately precedes it it will suggest that there is an error in the first character of my selection when there is none, else it will just act like it did something but do nothing. This used to work and is a frustration now. This has been the case with both 7.3 betas and I believe at…

  20. CREATE TABLE dbo.GrumpyOld (col1 int)

    SQL Prompt will alias the table as GO, which causes problems because it's a batch separator.
