  1. It would be nice to get a warning on delete or update statements if you did not specify a where clause.

  2. I love Tab Magic (or Tab History), but the with the latest version it also shows the tabs that are currently open. I would like an option to ignore currently open tabs. I can search those tabs right in SSMS, I need Tab History just for ones I've already closed.

  3. Had this discussion with some folks at work today. SSMS Toolspack does tab coloring but it places a color band across the entire width of the query editor while SQL Prompt's tab coloring only colors the tab. The whole line is a much more obvious reminder. Be great if SQL Prompt did a similar thing. I realize Tab coloring is an experimental feature still.

  4. Excellent work by the team in SQL Prompt 6.4 implementing the "Insert Statement Highlighting Column and Value" feature.

    http://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/94413-sql-prompt/suggestions/4223150-insert-statement-highlighting-column-and-value

    It would be great if this could be tweaked to work with split-screen editing. For example, if you have a REAAALLLY wide table, you might want to have your editing cursor in the bottom pane of SSMS but be looking at the top pane.

    To clarify, I am talking about allowing the highlighting to work in both the top and bottom panes if you enable Window... Split (or drag the thing down at the top of the scroll bar).

  5. When formatting SQL, add an option to force all possible columns/objects/whatever to be qualified with square brackets. So:

    CREATE TABLE #qqqqq (aaaaa INT,bbbbb INT,ccccc VARCHAR(5));
    Becomes: CREATE TABLE [#qqqqq] ([aaaaa] INT,[bbbbb] INT,[ccccc] VARCHAR(5));
    Or: CREATE TABLE [#qqqqq] ([aaaaa] [INT],[bbbbb] [INT],[ccccc] [VARCHAR](5));

  6. We have a table called SalesOrder. We also have stored procedures named so, so2, and so3. When SQL prompt creates the auto alias, it uses so4 because it won't create an alias using the name of an existing object.

    I would like the alias to use so. The aliases don't need to have unique names in cases where the name conflicts with the name of a stored procedure.

    If that's not possible or likely, then I would like SQL Prompt to use the custom alias defined for the table, even in cases where the name conflicts with a stored procedure.

  8. Please add an option to ignore tabs over a certain number of connections.

    It would avoid long waits when SSMS starts if in the previous session I forget to close a one-time query against hundreds of servers.

    In its current implementation, SQL Prompt can crash SSMS before the connections complete.

    See SQL Prompt forum for context:

  10. I usually run the latest version of the beta and it would be nice if "Check for Updates" would pick up the latest version version of SQL Prompt, including any beta versions.
    Perhaps this could be an option for those that aren't interested in participating in betas.

    SQL Prompt 7 now has a button to toggle beta updates on the check for updates dialog.

  11. Option to remove trailing spaces from script lines. This can be done via search/replace functionality but it would be nice to have this taken care of automatically during the SQL code reformatting

  12. I find having the commas at the beginning of the line extremely useful - and was glad that Sql Prompt allows us to set the default as such for insert statements. I have to say the format is quite difficult to read, and find that I have to rewrite it each time. Can you please spend a few minutes to clean it up? I see there are a couple outstanding requests that have been ignored for 2 years now - no input from redgate at all. I'm sure there are others who would agree with this - (just check out…

  13. We have a lot of legacy code that is written as

    SELECT Field1 as Name1, Field2 Name2 FROM Table X
    (Sometimes they use AS when setting the alias, othertimes they do not).

    I would love the ability to convert this to
    SELECT
    Name1 = X.Field1
    , Name2 = X.Field2
    FROM Table X

    Both having the ability to switch between Name = Value and Value AS Name and to auto add the alias to all fields.

    This feature was released in version 7.3 of SQL Prompt.

    If there are any missing features please let us know by creating a new suggestion.

  14. I added the 'dot' option to insertion keys and now I am unable to type dots in an IP address for a linked server without it autocompleting some random address, which I then have to go back and correct.

  15. It would be nice to have sortable columns in the table popup. This way we can see them in ordinal order (as it exists now), or order them alphabetically (or even by data type). Hopefully not much harder than changing a grid column property.
    This would make it much easier for our Oracle folks to accept using SSMS, as it seems all Oracle tools do this by default. It would also shut them up. :) :)

  16. Due to the length of some of the queries I write, I have to edit the file RedGateSqlPromptEngine_EngineOptions.xml manually. It would be nice to be able to edit the values for ParserLookBackDistance and ParserLookAheadDistance in the Options menu. I understand the drawbacks of making these values too large. If they were in the Options menu I could adjust them for a long query and then set them back for shorter queries.

  17. The suggestions list after the TRIGGER is full of triggers. SQL Prompt, having been given the schema and table should narrow that list to only those present on the table to be ALTERed.

    I would categorize this as a bug, rather than a suggestion...

  18. 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.

  19. If I edit a statement like SELECT COALESCE(x, y, z) and then add some parenthetical as in LTRIM(COALESCE(x, y, z)), the last parenthetical is deleted by SQL Prompt even though I typed it. Two options are to 1) correctly establish parenthesis or 2) stop deleting characters I type correctly

  20. It would be nice to have a placeholder that, when the snippet was used, was replaced with a new GUID. For example:

    INSERT audit.Changes (Id, Date, Reason)
    VALUES ('$GUID$', '$DATE$', '$CURSOR$')
