SQL Complete

dbForge SQL Complete is an intellisense add-in for SQL Server Management Studio and Visual Studio with advanced autocompletion and formatting features of T-SQL code.

How can we improve SQL Complete?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Goto Type/Database Object

    Resharper, a popular addon for visual studio has a nifty feature where you can hit ctrl+t to open a compact search window where you can type part of a type name, and a list of clickable suggestions is presented as you type.

    http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/features/navigation_search.html#Go_to_Type

    It would be quite handy to have something similar for Management Studio.
    Clicking any of the matches could open a new query window with an ALTER statement prepared.

  2. Highlight Unused Variables

    Declare @var1 INT, @var2 INT
    SELECT @var1 = 1, @var2 = 2
    SELECT @var1 [@var1]
    -- @var2 should be highlighted in the declaration since its assigned value is never used.

  3. Add option to include (NOLOCK) when auto-completing

    Due to the nature of our data, we use NOLOCK on most of our queries. It would be useful for us to be able to automatically have (NOLOCK) included when part of a statement is auto-completed. It may be useful to have it so that this option can be turned on only in specific databases.

  4. Suggest WHERE conditions

    Let's say, there are tables A and B linked with a foreign key.

    Currently, dbForge SQL Complete suggests joining conditions:

    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.A a
    JOIN dbo.B b ON ->> a.id = b.id

    As part of this feature, dbForge SQL Complete could also suggest conditions in the following queries:

    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.A a
    OUTER APPLY (
    SELECT TOP 1 *
    FROM dbo.B b
    WHERE ->> a.id = b.id
    ) t

    SELECT
    *
    , (
    SELECT TOP 1 ', '
    FROM dbo.B b
    WHERE ->> a.id = b.id
    )
    FROM dbo.A a

    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.A a
    WHERE NOT EXISTS( …

  5. Remove square brackets

    Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio puts square brackets [ and ] around everything scripted or dragged/dropped from the Object Explorer to the scripting window.

    I want a feature to remove all square brackets.

    I currently have to use SQL Management Studio search/replace to remove the brackets, and rather have the removal performed when I format the code.

  8. "Folding" queries

    It would be interesting to be able to "fold" and "unfold" a query from a single line state (still showing the full query) to a multiline, formatted state.

    The following query, for example,

    | |
    |+| SELECT * FROM SomeTable WHERE SomeField = 3.14;
    | |

    would unfold to

    | |
    |- | SELECT
    | | *
    | | FROM
    | | SomeTable
    | | WHERE
    | | SomeValue = 3.14;
    | |

    and back.

  9. Execute Current Statement - Key binding

    PLEASE, allow user to change the keybinding for 'Execute Current Statement' , this should not be that difficult. Believe it or not, I have to move my hands on the keyboard quite a bit to type 'Ctl-Shift-E' .

    If you can't open it up for a custom key binding , then at least give some options , like ' Alt-E ' would be very nice.

    Related to this feature:

  11. Suggestion: Option to switch between select format styles

    Here is a suggestion to allow the formatter (to be set to and) to automatically change the formats of declaring a field name and its definition.

    i.e.
    Style 1: select [field1] = a+b
    Style 2: select a+b [field1]
    Style 3: select a+b as [field1]

  13. implement new code formatting options

    SELECT
    ......p.PersonType,
    ......p.NameStyle,
    ......p.Title
    FROM
    ......Person.BusinessEntity be
    INNER JOIN
    ......Person.Person p
    ............ON
    ..................be.BusinessEntityID = p.BusinessEntityID
    INNER JOIN
    ......Person.PersonPhone pp
    ............ON
    ..................p.BusinessEntityID = pp.BusinessEntityID
    ..................AND
    ..................be.ModifiedDate = pp.ModifiedDate

    WHERE
    ............1 = 1
    ......AND
    ............p.Suffix = 'N'
    ......AND
    ............p.Title NOT IN ('A1', 'B1','C1')
    ......AND
    ............(
    ..................p.FirstName LIKE '%abc%'
    ..................OR
    ..................p.LastName LIKE '%def%'
    ............)

    Add the following options to customize the code formatter regarding the example located above:

    For JOIN's
    one indent less than current

    For WHERE clause
    stack conditions
    Line break after opening brace of logical operand
    Line break before closing brace of logical operand
    Indent condition in list braces
    Wrap condition…

  15. Include Snippets in Import and Export Settings

    It would be great if there was an option to import/export snippets in the "SQL Complete->Import and Export Settings".

    This way snippets could easily be shared between team members.

  16. Ability to copy a value in the grid along with the column it belongs and formatted for WHERE clause

    For example, let's assume this is the output from a query:
    id name role
    -------------------------------
    1 Torn ADMIN
    2 John CLERK
    3 Adam SUPER

    I would like to click on say John, and press a combination of keys (CTRL+Q for example) and have the ability to copy in the clipboard the following: name = 'John'.

    In addition, if I select multiple cells, say I select all Adam and SUPER cells, and press the combination of keys, it should copy:
    name = 'Adam' and role = 'SUPER'

  17. Include underscore in CamelCase interpolation

    In our schema, we have the unfortunate convention (if you can call it that...) of including underscores in many table and sproc names. For instance, a report sproc might be named Report_SalesByChannel. It would be awesome if the CamelCase interpretation either completely ignored the underscores in the name while providing the suggestions (so typing rsbc would suggest the above named report), or make it so the _ is one of the interpreted characters, which would allow r_sbc to again suggest the above sproc. Right now any stored procedure with an underscore cannot be quickly suggested by any abbreviation (just by…

  18. Intellisense/Completion for UDTs

    User Defined Types seem to have no intellisense or completion. Hovering over them shows no information about them. SQL Complete does not offer to complete the field list when inserting into them.

    This is extremely annoying. Please add intellisense and completion for UDTs!

  19. Option to right-align table aliases in SELECT list

    Add an option to right-align table aliases in the SELECT list.

    Here is an example:

    SELECT
    -> [alias]->-> -> -> =t.col1
    -> ,[different_len] -> =t.col1
    FROM table_name t

    =t.col1 should be right-aligned and stay under each other.

  20. Pivot Columnar / Vertical Tables to Tradiational Row-type tables

    I have looked high and low for product that will meet a need that I often have; from the number of posts that I find on the net many others have as well.

    More and more, with the increase in the amount of data being collected and queried, data warehouses, BI software, using columnar tables (sometimes referred to as a vertical data structure) makes more since. Vertica DB and Terri Data use this structure natively.

    However, it often is necessary to convert (or pivot) the data to a traditional horizontal, row-based format. In SQL Server as well as Oracle, and…
