  1. Unlike a proper programming language TSQL allows you to declare a variable inside an IF block (or some other scope) and then use the variable outside that IF block, even if the IF block is not entered during run time. This can lead to errors if the code outside the IF is testing for certain values.

    It would be good if Code Analysis could detect this as a potentially dangerous coding structure.

    E.g.
    IF 1 = 0
    BEGIN
    DECLARE @Var VARCHAR(50) = '123';
    END;
    SELECT @Var

  2. I got a suggestion from SQL Prompt for "Slow cached time detected".The link (seen in the screenshot) was this one:

    https://documentation.red-gate.com/sp/managing-sql-prompt-behavior/managing-connections-and-memory

    So from what I understand, I need to manually go through all databases and schemas and select the ones I think are used to the most in order to only load suggestions for them, in order to improve performance?

    While I generally like SQL Prompt, the first word that came to mind was that this pretty much sucked, but let's just say it's less that optimal I think. Given that we’re in the ”AI age”, I was hoping that…

  3. When a column(s) on the Results Grid is selected, show the Count, Distinct Count, Avg, Min, Max, Sum of the data in the column(s). Make it an option as to what to show by default, but with the option of widening or narrowing the aforementioned data.

  4. Global formatting options like "Insert Semicolons", "Add brackets to all identifiers" etc should be part of a formatting style, this way changing a formatting style can also quickly switch between these options.
    Currently even after changing a formatting style these options on the screenshot below had to be manually changed one by one, it's inefficient to say the least.

  5. When you use the interactive sign in with AD option with a SQL database, it's not very stable in it's connection. I suspect it's either not supporting the refresh tokens (if it has them) or hasn't got the right detection for an expired token.

    When authentication fails in this mode, it gives up silently and functionality starts to turn off as it can't connect to the database - see attached log.

    I have to close SSMS every 3 hours or so, which forces SQL prompt to re-authenticate and get a new token. Turning on/off suggestions does not trigger a reauthentication.

  6. I have a handful of tables/views I use the same aliases for. I want to have SQL Prompt add those aliases when it completes the table/view name, but not automatically create new aliases for all of the other tables/views

  10. Our dev group versions our styles. A small change between style versions can cause numerous changes in a single file making peer reviews more difficult than they need to be.

    My suggestion is to add an Format > Styles > Actions option to add style stamp. Implementation would be adding a comment with a style/version stamp at the top of the file when a format is applied. If the comment exists prior to formatting, that style will be used by SQL Prompt regardless of selected style. If the style/version is not found, the selected style is used. To change which…

  11. AI suggestions.

    I'm not part of your AI program waiting list. However here what I suggest.

    Do not make the AI part of your program an only cloud-based solution. There are plenty of opensource code models free for commercial use that can be ran locally on a PC. These models can also run under CPU but will up the memory to enable this feature requirements for AI on client side only. It's too dangerous for Redgate to store this information on the cloud even with a solid EULA, and laws are subject to change. Please offload this burden back to…

  13. I prefer opening SSMS with no tabs and use SQL History to navigate tab history. It would be great to have an option to open SQL History on startup and/or if SQL History is docked then redock SQL History on startup

  14. I would love an option where, after adding an alias to a table, you can add it as a prefix to all columns coming from that particular table at once.

    Some keystroke like Ctrl + F2 would be nice.

  15. Currently, SQL prompt doesn't support the windows certificate store like most applications do. The only way to work around that currently is to simply trust all certificates which is inconvenient (having to set this across potentially hundreds of server connections) and a security gap.

    SQL prompt should either provide an option to leverage the certificates. Currently, if a blanket trust is not provided, SSMS and SQL in general will work fine, but SQL prompt will cease to function, since the application (visual studio, SSMS) will connect correctly, but SQL prompt will not.

  16. Currently users have to install SQL Prompt updates manually and this requires administrator privileges which is not ideal in a workplace setting. I was wondering if this could be changed so that SQL Prompt updates itself without the need for manual install and administrator privileges.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

  17. With SQL Prompt, and selecting "Copy as IN clause" on a resultset, is it possible to format the result as all one line, like:

    IN (1,2,3,4,5,6)

    instead of what it does currently:

    IN (

    1,

    2,

    3,

    4,

    5,

    6) ?

    Having it all on one line makes a statement easier to read, when there are a lot of items in the list.

  18. I had a query which was using ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY ColumnA ORDER BY ColumnB, ColumnC) and FORMAT SQL command put the ORDER BY clause as the first thing on the line (no indentation). It would be better if, when it needs to be wrapped, the ORDER BY inside an OVER was indented to line up with PARTITION BY).

  19. I really love the add (quotes and) commas feature in SQL Prompt. Unfortunately we cannot produce a snippet similar to those.

    If you select some text it would be nice to format each line to a certain format.
    Like for example

    E46337E5-ECBC-41D4-A63E-A994E16BD8F7

    4426C0B6-6216-4BFE-BE54-C1D917B593A5
    7BC5ED9E-E8C3-4618-B625-786F4B931D97

    2C801ADE-995A-4158-9D0A-7DA03911D093
    425BAAC6-6A0B-419C-B393-79B21A628538

    turn into

    ('E46337E5-ECBC-41D4-A63E-A994E16BD8F7'),
    ('669F0B8E-5E1C-47CE-A799-81B47C9BC045'),
    ('65D23D56-7EB8-44AE-9158-C3D8B5684357'),
    ('AAFE4057-10B9-4AE8-BE76-C22537D29790'),
    ('4426C0B6-6216-4BFE-BE54-C1D917B593A5'),
    ('7BC5ED9E-E8C3-4618-B625-786F4B931D97'),

    ('425BAAC6-6A0B-419C-B393-79B21A628538')

    OR even better

    prepend

    SELECT t.x FROM (VALUES

    and append

    ) t(x)

    I often use this format to look up data in the database. I know I can achieve this with Excel and consorts. Or even with…

  20. Occasionally I must edit the definition of a computed column. As editing a computed column is not allowed from SQL, would be nice to generate a script that would facilitate this update, similar to the rename script. (Ie, drops indexes, drops the field, recreates the field, and recreates the indexes.)

    Obviously this is similar to the functionality of the Smart Rename, except doesnt' have to edit Views and Sprocs, so hopefully most of the logic could quickly copy over from there!
