  2. I have couple of websites and I manage the databases for my website using dbForge Studio by connecting to hosting SQL server. You know that web hostings has hundreds of databases on SQL instance so expanding the connection in database explorer takes time. I wish I was able to embed filters when creating a connection so it will show the selected databases only.

  6. I've been trying to find a database front end to use in Wordpress and apart from a very complicated Participants Plugin there is nothing else available, I am building a site for a car club (not for profit) and they want to enter the vehile details and current whereabouts of vehicle that have passed through their club dating back to 1926 so it's available to all their members and members of affiliated clubs wordwide. So that's my suggestion, a Wordpress PLugin.

  7. In the "Find invalid objects", I really miss an option to "Select all". There's a "Clear all", but not a "Select all".

  8. The DevExpress grid control has the ability to fix (freeze) columns so that they remain visible as you horizontally scroll the other columns. It would be great to have that available in the DbForge grid:

  9. I want to automatically change the Collation. If you just change the Collation in the database, then the new Collation applies only to new tables. And old tables need to be changed through a script. The views do not change either.

  10. Search does not find all stored procedures in a case sensitive database. The default case insensitive search misses some objects. To make it work, you must specify the exact case sensitive search string and make the search case sensitive. The default server collation in my instance was case insensitive.

  12. In SSMS the number of rows affected by a tsql statement is printed to the Messages tab. In dbForge Studio only the number of rows returned to the application is sent to the Output->General window.
    The details in SSMS are extremely useful, especially for UPDATE and DELETE statements or other code that returns no data to the application (e.g. selecting rows into a new table).

  15. Most spreadsheets I get have unsupported characters in column headers - like slashes, line breaks and spaces. It would be great to have the import wizard allow a regex or other way to clean up the columns in a batch. e.g. "sales rep" could become "SalesRep", or "district / group" could become "DistrictGroup"

  16. The Excel file should be copied to a temp file to ignore file locks caused by the file being opened in Excel. The import should allow a refresh at the end of the wizard right before the import begins.

  18. Prior to the major code change of SQL Studio, when a new window was opened, it always open to the right of the current window. Now, for that past few versions, a new opened window always opens to the right of the Start Page window.

    Please restore the open window behavior to place new windows to the top of the Most Recently Used (MRU) window stack. This would be a quality of life improvement, since right now I open a window, then I have to manually move it to where I want it to be.
