  1. 'History for SQL Queryxxx' pane - there are too many versions. I don't need a version for every minor change. How about adding an option for how often to save versions?

  2. Recent queries section has date sections wrong. It is showing queries from last night as today. Maybe a time zone thing? It should use the machine's time zone.

  3. When opening SQL History, it should default the cursor to the search input box instead of requiring an additional click to start a search. Since 90% of the time I'm going to input a search, it makes sense to put it there.

    This has no downside as, currently, the cursor doesn't by default go to anything.

  4. Just like Tab History has, SQL History should have a keyboard shortcut to open the window.

    Hello, 


    You can use Alt+S to open the SQL Prompt command palette and then start typing Hist to get to this without using your mouse.  

     

    It's not exactly what you're asking for, but I hope this helps.


    Thank you!

  5. In prior versions, SQL Prompt would connect open queries as SSMS was opening but it would not refresh suggestions (index associated database) until an open query tab was activated (selected).

    The current version (10.13.3.32087) still connects open queries but it also refreshes suggestions for all open queries as it is connecting them.

    This leads to a sluggish experience with both typing and an increased delay in the time it takes for SQL Prompt suggestions to display. I suspect it is due to the large amount of cached suggestions.

    I typically leave many query tabs open when working in SSMS so…

  6. The formatter is not recognizing the newish DateTrunc function in T-SQL, so formatting and intellisense do not work on SQL statements that include DateTrunc.

  7. We add certain standard columns to all tables (LastUpdatedDate for example). Would be great to be able to set a list of these columns in the Options so they can be excluded from list of suggested JOINS

  8. Hello Redgate and the community,
    During my day to day work, it would be greatly helpful to get a shortcut to enter the filter setting menu, not only on databases, but also tables, views and stored procedures and what not, just a global shortcut, to enter the filter setting on the selected folder (if that is available for the folder)

  9. It is generally bad practice to use system named constraints and there should be a rule for flagging them when there is DDL code creating one.

  10. Since upgrading to latest version of SQL Prompt, I seem to be getting an error from Excel when I choose "Open in Excel". The XML recovery log looks like this:

    <recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetml/2006/main">
    <logFileName>error09000001.xml</logFileName>
    <summary>Errors were detected in file 'C:\Users\ned.bush\AppData\Local\Temp\raovxova.xw3\Exported results 2022-10-25

  11. e.g.

    declare @1 table (a int, b int)
    declare @2 table (a INT, b int)

    SELECT a, b FROM
    @1 a
    CROSS JOIN @2 b

    Here there are 2 possibilities for columns a and b, however SQL prompt only suggests the second one. Both should be shown and the user given the chance to choose.

    SQL Prompt does not recognize the ambiguity nor alert the user to it (although Microsoft Intellisense does flag the ambiguity). This can result in the user selecting the wrong alias (since only one is presented, apparently the last one found) which can result in hard-to-debug…

  12. 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…

  13. When using the Script as Insert, it generates the Create Table with the table name as #temptable. If you want to change that name, you have to then change it in the Create, Insert, and Drop locations.

    Would be nice if this defaulted as a snippet placeholder so that editing one would edit the other two as well.

  14. With the Script as INSERT feature, give the option to just copy the CREATE TABLE and INSERT INTO statements to the clipboard.

    I regularly create Temp Tables to store query results when working through a SPROC. (Generate a dataset, throw it in a temp table to use for later, drop it at the end of the SPROC. More efficient than doing one massive Select with Subqueries.) When you Script as INSERT, that's created in a new tab. I copy that code and go back to the original tab.

    Would be convenient if I could copy straight to the clipboard and…

  15. Like the snippet placeholder $SERVER$ inserts the name of the connected SQL server and $DBNAME$ inserts the name of the connected database I would like a placeholder $OBJECTNAME$ that will insert the name of the object already selected in Object Explorer.

  17. Allow an option when saving / running a file that you format the sql to the format selected. Will make sure the whole team follow the standards and does not forget to run the formatter.

  20. SSMS homes files other than .SQL scripts. Sometimes an you closed an execution plan or a deadlock graph you wish you had saved. Tab history should cache non-SQL file types along with standard SQL scripts so you can get these back when you accidentally closed SSMS or after a crash.
