  2. It would be awsome if there was an option that would format an SQL Script automatically after opening it in SSMS / VS. So if you load a file it would be formatted automatically with your selected formatting style. It would be great too if this auto format option could be switched on and off in the Options.

  3. Work at a company where we're adopting PDW. It would be great if I could get intellisense in PDW.

  4. Prompt currently needs a database connection to retrieve objects/suggestions from, which it gets from a database project's "Target Connection String".

    It would be better if prompt loaded suggestions directly from the sql files in the project without needing the database.

  5. I would love to be able to compare the contents of two tabs (maybe by using a third party program that is run on the temp files).

    This would save me the time of having to save them down to files before using a tool like diffmerge or...

    Please consider this!

    Thx for great products.

  6. I have been using SQL Prompt for awhile and one of the best feature I like about it is the fact that Intellisense works even on Linked Server to other MSSQL databases.

    Recently however, I have set up Linked server to MySQL ODBC connections and I noticed that Intellisense is no longer returning the table names and column names in the predictive boxes.

    I then tested this to other ODBC connection. I set up Firebird (DB2) and Oracle and Intellisense seems to be working for these (only for table names, not columns but that's better than nothing).

    Is there a…

  7. Provide a better tab list for navigation than the one supplied by SSMS when there are many tabs open, for instance a resizable "navigation" window (or even a navigation tab) that easily allows filtering/grouping by server instance, database, user defined, etc.

    As a complement to grouping tabs would be to allow naming, saving, closing, and opening of a "tab group" - related queries/script files that do not make up an SSMS "project" but are used for a particular purpose or go against a particular database, etc (user determines grouping criteria, see above). Furthermore, activating a tab group would bring its…

  8. Setting the option to use spaces instead of tabs for intending (our house policy) only works for new tab presses.
    I would like a simple action that would replace all tabs in the current document with spaces -- using the tab-to-spaces value as set in options. Sublime Text has this and I use practically every time I edit anything.

  10. sometimes I need to just change the casing of letters in a field name (e.g. a field has GUID and I want to make it Guid). smart rename does not allow me to change the name if the new name is exactly the same saying that a column with this name already exists.

    so I change the name to GuidXXXX and then on the generated script remove the XXXX and the script runs just fine.

    I think smart rename should not warn that the name exists if I am just changing casing of the name

  11. Summarize script is sort-of useful as a way to see script blocks easily, but it will be BRILLIANT if it was a dockable (not modal) window that you very quickly select the script blocks in the editor.

    I often select parts of a script or subqueries to run - if Summarize Script automatically selected them for me it would be a huge productivity boost: 1-click selection + F5 = AWESOME!

  12. When I hover over an object and get the pop-up script for that object (proc/view/function) I would like the ability to have the script default to ALTER instead of CREATE.

    99.9% of the time I manually have to edit the Create to be an Alter, this would save SO MUCH time.

  14. Add to the Results To options an Excel Like grid that presents the results i8n a grid but allows for Excel like functuionality without re-executing the query.

    I often am sending my data (via copy & paste) to Excel for aditional reserahc because the query takes a long time to run and I alrady have the core data I needd, I just need to fin tune it bu re-sorting or even re-aggregating the data differently.

    It wulod be a killer plus if Microsoft simply reaplced the existing SSMS Grid with a mini-version of Excel but since Thats not likely any…

  15. in toad you can get it to convert a SQL statement into a VB or C# statement. i.e. if you have
    select * from atable
    where a = 'FREE'

    this would be converted to
    SQL = "select * from atable"
    sql =sql & "where a = 'FREE'"

    this is then pasted into the clipboard

    it can also do the reverse, have a chunk of VB code with a SQL statement, past it into the window, highlight it and it will try and convert it back to straight SQL (do not worry about variables added into the the vbcode, even toad…

  18. The reason I would like to see the folders is strictly for organizational purposes. I have so many procedures and tables in one database that I have to scroll through them all to find what I’m looking for. If I could organize by schema (or however I choose) and very quickly and jump back and forth between the different folders, that would help me out tremendously. The SQL filter function is so slow when going back and forth.

    What if I could organize sql instances that I'm connected to in one SSMS. Production and Development folders?? Just another thought.
