  1. In version 10.12.1 and older the "Open in Excel" functionality actually created a Excel file where numbers were numbers and could be used in formulas like SUM. Starting in, I think, 10.12.4 you started exporting all numbers as a string. That completely breaks the usability, as you can then no longer make a formula using the numbers. (And while Excel offers the option to convert them back to numbers, it would be a pain to do it for each column that needed it and it takes FOREVER.)

    At this point I will have to stay on 10.12.1 and not upgrade…

  2. Currently the files write out to a temporary file location. Add pane in settings window to change the location (e.g. a folder in my one drive that is not read only)

  3. When working on a management server with SQL Prompt and SSMS, we usually don't have Microsoft Office with Excel installed there. This makes it very cumbersome to use the current feature of SQL Prompt to export grid results to an Excel file as there is no application available on the server to process the file.

    Instead, I often use a very nice feature in SSMSBoost that copies to grid results data to an XML spreadsheet which can then be pasted into Excel on your client, preserving data types. The regular copy/paste from SSMS to Excel only copies text data from…

  4. It would be useful to have snippets included when searching in the command palette. Selecting snippet would open snippet editor with focus on the selected snippet.

  5. There is a feature that was in WinSQL where each field in a column would have a little plus sign if it had a foreign key. If you click the plus sign it would look up that value in the table with the foreign key in a new tab (it would give a choice of tables if there are more than one, then do the lookup).
    It was very useful and a great learning tool; it would be a great addition to SQL Prompt. Pictures attached.

  6. Before I upgraded to latest version of SQL Prompt, if I had two queries in the same "New Query" window and ran them, I could select either of the two result sets and choose "Open in Excel" to open up the selected result set in Excel. Now it always seems to auto-select the first result set.

    What I'm usually doing here is two related queries. I pick the larger result set, open that in Excel, and then add a new tab to Excel and copy-and-paste the smaller result set to the 2nd tab. Or sometimes I'm doing multiple queries to…

  7. I would like to be able to specify different script blocks inside a snippet that would work differently based upon the sql server version of the server I am connected to.

    Or.... optionally have a version indicator on the snippet to perform the same thing. Then if two snippets share the same name it would apply the correct one based upon version.

    EX:

    :if $version_major$ >= 13
        CREATE OR ALTER PROCEDURE [$dbo$].[$proc_name$] (@param1 INT) AS BEGIN
            $CURSOR$SELECT @param1
        END
        GO
    :else 
        IF OBJECT_ID('[$dbo$].[$proc_name$]', 'P') IS NULL BEGIN
            EXEC('CREATE PROCEDURE [$dbo$].[$proc_name$] AS BEGIN SELECT 1; END;')
        END 
    
        GO
        ALTER PROCEDURE [$dbo$].[$proc_name$]

  8. I often find myself in a scenario where I am doing something like:
    1. Mock some data (SQL query)
    2. Perform a front end action as though I'm a user
    3. Check some data (SQL query)
    4. Alter a procedure (SQL query in a different window)
    5. Repeat

    I think it would be nice if I could pin the mock/check queries to a window in the side of the manager so that I could click to run them instead of having to click in them then shift+f5 or whatever. And even more nice not having to have a second editor…

  9. Tab Colors add a great feature to know I am on a production server. It would be improved by being accessibility compliant. In the attached you can see black on red is harder to see than white on red.

  11. It would be very useful to be able produce where clause from copied horizontal selection from the results grid. For example from the uploaded image, where clause should be

    WHERE CTA.TRANSACTIONDATE = '2021-06-27'
    AND CTA.TRANSACTION
    TYPECODE = 52
    AND CTA.ITEM
    CODE = 1500012200
    AND CTA.ITEMBARCODE = '8001841964966'
    AND CTA.YOUR
    COMPANYCR = 104183
    AND CTA.OTHER
    ENTITY_CR = 46084

  13. At the moment a user is warned before executing a potentially dangerous operation.
    However, junior devs might accidentally just press enter without thinking twice.
    Please add functionality to PROHIBIT execution besides WARNING (like SSMS Boost has) so that junior devs can't make mistakes at all.
    It would be fantastic if this would be possible.

  16. You should fix the use of multiple versions of your name (Red Gate | Red-Gate | Redgate | redgate | red-gate) across all software and communications. See attached picture.

    We try to promote your products in our consulting company, but everyone uses a different name to refer to your company.

  20. Hi, this is not related to SQL Prompt only, but to the update process in general.
    As our company firewall is blocking the link in Help "Check for updates ...", I have to submit the "Download a 28 days trial" form and download the full "SQLToolbelt.exe".
    Which is also blocked by the company proxy rules. :-(
    So I have to download the file on my private PC and then copy it to my business machine.
    I assume, my company is not the only one with such precautionary measures.
    Maybe you can implement additional options to download updates.
