  1. The way I work when creating complicated scripts is creating all the SELECT statements and then convert them to CTEs of my final query.
    It would be nice if you could convert SELECT into CTE

  2. Sometimes my SSMS crashes. The Crash recovery of the program is not good enough. Would love to see "auto save" option that will save the open queries to history each time I'm idle for few moments. It would be much easier to recover than reproduce

  3. In cases where there is SELECT DISTINCT or SELECT TOP(n) .. I would l like the option to format my table's columns to appear on the next line and indented 1 tab or set of spaces in from the SELECT and not necessarily aligned with DISTINCT or TOP in the line above.

    SELECT DISTINCT
    COLUMN1,
    COLUMN2
    FROM ...

    instead of

    SELECT DISTINCT
    Column1,
    Column2
    FROM ...

  4. It would be great to be able to use the formatter to create an automated table of contents based on some recognized commented pattern. For example, I could begin each section of code with:

    --******
    -- Title of section
    --******

    Then after using the formatter it would see the commented section and add the line number for each section in the beginning of the script. I imagine something similar to MS Word's auto generated table of contents.

  5. Currently when SQL code is formatted, it will pick the first schema, if there are multiple objects with same name but having different schemas. It would be good if the choice is given to the user to choose which schema.objectname to use in this case.

    Also it's better if we can exclude certain schema's to be considered during code format. (But want to see the intellisense. Only to exclude them during the code format)

  6. It would be nice to search for multiple keywords in the Tab History. For example, I know I had a script to insert data from TableA to TableB, but I searching for TableA or TableB yields to much result (both are frequently use tables). Searching for "TableA, TableB" or "TableA*TableB" would be a good quality of life feature.

  7. Using a shortcut to swap commented / uncommented lines in the sql script. This could be very helpful when we need to test (select / update) for the same source query.

    Please check the screenshots

    Thanks

  9. Automatically insert a snippet as soon as you start a New Query in SSMS. I want all my developers to always start every script with a comment block with their username, date and a description of what the script is supposed to do. A shared snippet is already handy for this, but adding this could make it easier to build that habit for new team members.

  10. IN SSMS there is an entire list of scripting options (turn off/on collation, extended properties, etc). Can SQL Prompt read those options and format the scripts it generates based on those settings?

  11. F12 to Script views and stored procedures as ALTER is one of my favorite features. I would love it if F12 when I am on a table generates a CREATE TABLE script for that table.

  12. Highlighting invalid objects is a nice feature, but it would also be nice to "find" invalid objects in a script.
    Running SQL Format on a script with an invalid object in it runs fine and gives no error, it just doesn't prefix the object (like a table) with the schema.
    It would be nice to have a quick and easy way to "go to next invalid object" or even for when you run SQL Format to have it bring up a warning saying "this/these object/s appear to be invalid".

  13. After running a select on a table with a float(53) column, "Script as INSERT" from the right click menu on the results will script an insert with float(8) as the data type instead of float(53), presumably from the length of the column being recorded as 8 bytes when the float(n) is defined with n being bits.

    Minor thing, but ended up causing issues with an equal statement since the floats had different precision when comparing to the original table.

  14. I have included a Sample SQL script. This script shows the desired formatting. I can't find any way to prevent the OPENJSON from being sent to a new line. For example:

    SELECT *
    FROM OPENJSON(@JSON, '$.Doc') AS OJ
    CROSS APPLY OPENJSON(OJ.Value)
    WITH (ID int) AS CAOJ

    becomes

    SELECT *
    FROM OPENJSON(@JSON, '$.Doc') AS OJ
    CROSS APPLY
    OPENJSON(OJ.Value)
    WITH ( ID INT ) AS CAOJ

  17. 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.

  19. SQL Prompt should allow block comments /* SQL Prompt formatting off */ to disable T-SQL formatting.

    Single line comments are a pain when tuning queries. I would always use block comments in my code except when I don't want SQL Prompt to not mess with certain T-SQL it does not format to my standards.

    Blocking formatting should support both type of comments.
    /* SQL Prompt formatting off */
    -- SQL Prompt formatting off

  20. I see that Azure data studio support is on the roadmap, but cannot see any reference to the MacOS / Linux versions of Azure data studio?
    Would be great to not have to boot up Windows to get to the awesome speed and power which SQL Prompt provides.
