  1. It would be great to be able to bulk delete old or unneeded tabs from Tab History. Right now, I have to delete it one by one which is an endless task.

  2. Hi,

    First, I like the new design, and thank you for make it available for SSMS 2012.
    I have 2 problems:
    1. I missing the Option button (I don't wont it to open recently closed queries on start-up).
    2. When I'm searching for term in the Query History dialog, and hovering above one of the files in the left pane, its query text in the preview pane jumps to the somewhere in the file and move a bit to the left. I assumes it suppose to jump to the first match, but, it is not always even in the frame.…

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes a fix for these.

  3. Please enable SQL Prompt to have the same behavior with double quotes as with square brackets.

    For example, typing:
    SELECT * FROM [MyTable]
    will allow the expansion of the asterisk, while
    SELECT * FROM "MyTable"
    does not.

    SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER is ON by default. Also, many Oracle "converts" use the format "SchemaName"."TableName".

  4. Frequently I need to debug application generated SQL obtained via Profiler. Parameterized queries are often implemented with sp_executesql.

    I love using Format SQL to make a single line monster query into something I can actually read. But when it's stuck in an spexecutesql call the format function doesn't touch it. I have to:
    Remove "Exec sp
    executesql".
    Remove the apostrophes around the query SQL. For big queries this is really painful, especially if the query itself contains apostrophes.
    Remove the apostrophes around the parameter defenitions.
    Move the parameter definitions to the top and add a DECLARE.
    Move the parameter…

  5. It would great if there was an un-format SQL command, which would basically un-format the SQL by removing all the carriage returns, tabs, extra spaces, etc. I know it seems odd, but we have several applications that use the SQL via external files, so the formatting will not work, and we end up manually removing all the formatting.

  7. I find that in longer stored procedures, declared variables often don't show up as I start to type them. E.g. typing @ towards the beginning of the sp shows me a list of the variables, however if I'm further down in the proc, they ofter are not listed.

  8. So you could highlight a column and surround it with isnull() for example.
    Or surround a sql query and surround it with begin and end.

  11. Hows about Code sniffing? For checking code compliance with user defined standards. Like checking column names conform to a defined standard, warnings on bad practices etc. You know all those little annoying things like no clustered index, use of cursors instead of set based ops, use of Select * or of Insert into tableA values (a,b,c).

    All driven by user defined rules? With larger dev teams the standards docs always left to the side. If it could work on input and in some sort of batch mode (on sql source control check in?) it would be nice.

    I've been looking…

  12. It would be greate if you could make an option to Execute current statement/block/all staments from top to current stament (current=where the cursor located) when clicking Ctrl + Alt + F5/Ctrl + Shift + F5/Alt + Shift + F5.
    So, if the the cursor located in a the middle of long script, and I'm clicking Ctrl + Alt + F5 it will execute the currnt statment like if I would have select the current statement and click F5.
    Same for Ctrl + Shift + F5 and Current block and for Alt + Shift + F5 and all staments from top…

  13. Provide an option to not indent the FROM and WHERE clauses to remain them lined up with the SELECT clause while maintaining a single space after each clause.

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes support for 2012 analytic functions (LEAD, LAG, CUME_DIST, etc)

  15. Allow users to specify how CTEs should be formatted. Right now I get:

    WITH cte
    AS (
    SELECT
    Title
    ,FirstName
    ,LastName
    FROM
    isales.dbo.salesteam
    )
    SELECT
    Title
    ,FirstName
    ,LastName
    FROM
    cte

    What I would like is:

    WITH cte
    AS
    (
    SELECT
    Title
    ,FirstName
    ,LastName
    FROM
    MyTable
    )
    SELECT
    Title
    ,FirstName
    ,LastName
    FROM
    cte

  16. When an IF is short and does not have a BEGIN END on it, have it format to a single line.

    Right now if you have

    IF @Parameter1 = 0
    RETURN -1
    IF @Parameter2 = 0
    RETURN -2

    I would like it to be:

    IF @Parameter1 = 0 RETURN -1
    IF @Parameter2 = 0 RETURN -2

    which would make it more compact.

  18. Intellisense should pop up when a character is added after table is selected so when there is a table named SalesOrderLine it should be suggested even after the table SalesOrder was chosen via tab if i type further without a space.

    The latest version of SQL Prompt (6.3) should show the suggestions again once you type the “L” after SalesOrder

  19. When using default values for INSERT can you display GETDATE() instead of getting the current date and displaying that?

  20. When using a variable of a user defined table type, make intellisense smart enough to recognize the data type and provide the columns similar to if it were an actual table.
