  1. I have text within a snippet which includes the string "$2a$". The snippet manager replaces this which is not what I want. I need the snippet to remain unchanged.

  2. Someone else has submitted this suggestion and it is marked completed. However, it does not seem to do so in my version of SQL Prompt (9.2.6.6145)

  3. Version 9.2.5.6073

    I would like to request that script validation be limited to the selected text during Format SQL.

    This is a duplicate of a Completed feature (Bug) submitted on version 7. https://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/94413-sql-prompt/suggestions/16611622-formatting-of-valid-selected-code-when-there-is-in
    I see recent comments on the original request but you may not be addressing since it is marked completed.

    To Replicate:

    Put 3 lines below in a new Window in SSMS

    SOME BAD TEXT
    GO
    SELECT 1 FROM dbo.Person

    Now select All of Line 3 after the GO Statement. Right-click, Format SQL

    Should get following error:
    "Error inserting semicolons" ...

    Script parsing errors:
    Line 1 Col: 1…

  4. IF Statement block formatting is messed up

    IF 1 = 1
    BEGIN
    PRINT 'DO STUFF'
    END

    becomes

    IF 1 = 1 BEGIN
    PRINT 'DO STUFF';
    END;

    which is what I want...I want to leave the BEGIN END indention

  5. Tab history grows considerable with tabs that you don't care about. How about a hot key combination so that when the tab is closed it does not add it to history. Example: While holding the ctrl key down I close a tab and this prevents it from being added to history.

  6. when you insert a ssf (Select * from) you select the table and correct automatically errors like WEHRE, WERE, WEHER where the user wants to say a WHERE a logical word dictionary in which, it could be done by matching characters if all the characters written are 100% or 90% matches with word WHERE whenever is the order of the characters then autochange the text for where, This also can be matched with other KEYWORDS of SQL

  7. Would like to control formatting of the OVER clause. E.g I would like the complete "(Partition by ... order by ...) as xyz" on one line, but today it's overrdden by other options.

  8. Currently it shows the filename and servername, but it would really help to have the datetime of when it was executed. Sorting the columns would be an added benefit as well.

  9. Would be great if SQL Prompt Code Analysis would give a warning on SQL Below:

    SELECT CAST( 1.453 AS DECIMAL)
    SELECT CONVERT(DECIMAL, 1.453 )

  10. Would be great to be able to add user specific outlining, so that you could add + & - where ever you choose in a sql script to collapse down certain parts. The CRM system that I support has a create contact table import with 200 columns which is regularly used and this functionality would be great when having to resort to using this import etc...

  11. Currently the behavior for inserting a full INSERT statement is that it produces something like this:

    INSERT INTO dbo.ContactPictures
    ( InterActionPersonalContactID ,
    InterActionFirmContactID ,
    ImageFileStoreFilePathSegment ,
    Source ,
    ManuallyCreatedByUserAccountName ,
    DateTimeLastUpdated
    )
    VALUES ( 0 , -- InterActionPersonalContactID - int
    0 , -- InterActionFirmContactID - int
    '' , -- ImageFileStoreFilePathSegment - varchar(256)
    '' , -- Source - varchar(20)
    N'' , -- ManuallyCreatedByUserAccountName - nvarchar(40)
    GETDATE() -- DateTimeLastUpdated - datetime
    )

    Hard-coded values are rarely what's needed, though; it would be very useful if it could generate variables and use them in the statement, like this:

    DECLARE @InterActionPersonalContactID INT = 0…

  12. EXEC spwho2 without return (EXEC @Results = spwho2)
    Give a warning when tsql or stored procedure has execute a stored procedure without a variable for an error to bubble up to.

    This is the proper way because ieven in a try catch the Exec sp_who2 won't give and error to stop the tsql from going on

  13. I don't use SQL Prompt in Visual Studio and likely never will. However, every time I update, the updater defaults to installing it for VS and updating SSMS. It would be nice if the update process defaulted to only doing updates.

  15. My default preference is to maintain the ON keyword without a new line. I would like to be able to CONDITIONALLY place the ON keyword on a new line if, and only if the ON keyword together with the associated ON condition exceed a configurable wrap threshold.

    Example:
    -- Yield this >>>>
    SELECT *
    FROM Person.Address
    INNER JOIN Person.StateProvince
    ON StateProvince.StateProvinceID=Address.StateProvinceID
    -- >>>> instead of

    SELECT *
    FROM Person.Address
    INNER JOIN Person.StateProvince ON StateProvince.StateProvinceID=Address.StateProvinceID
    -- Assuming the JOIN clause exceeds the wrap length
    -- <<<

    This is particularly useful if the "Place JOIN table on new line" is NOT selected…

  16. Similar to the CTE request https://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/94413-sql-prompt/suggestions/19545028-format-cte-closing-parenthesis

    Aligning the closing parenthesis on its own line, in the same column as the opening paren, makes the subquery stand out, as well as making the alias stand out.

  18. Arithmetical expressions and compound logical expressions all consist of operations and expressions with parentheses and orders of precedence. All of these should have the options for aligning operands, aligning parentheses, adding parentheses to make the default orders of precedence explicit. All expressions are subordinate to clauses so they should be indented under WHERE, ON, SELECT, WHEN.

  19. It would be nice if the IN clause were formatted like a logical function that returns a value so that it followed the options and rules for parentheses and were indented according to its place in the logical expression. (paying attention to the ANDs and ORs if present)

  20. My Name is Waleed Abrar and my license number is. I am actively looking of Static TSQL Analysis and I was really happy with the SQL Prompt. I have done some analysis and implemented some test cases. It works really good working live and parallel to development . I want to ask if it’s possible to do an offline analysis and get a HTML or Excel report for a particular database about the TSQL code Quality inside the DB. For Example I can select the Database ‘XYZ’ and then click Analyze static code. It will give me a report back…
