  1. Format SELECT columns. Alias on left object on right separated by aligned " = ".

    e.g.

    SELECT
    ThisIsMyFirstCol = a.Col1
    , SecondCol = a.Col2
    , AndTheThrid = a.Col3
    , ForthCol = b.Col1
    , FithCol = CASE WHEN a.col1 = b.col2 THEN 'A'
    WHEN a.col2 = b.col3 THEN 'B' END

    FROM dbo.tableA AS a
    
        INNER JOIN dbo.tableB AS b

  2. In a SQL script, I create several schemas, tables, and procedures. I'd like to have the ability to right-click an object name (in the editor), and select something like "Generate DROP IF EXIST".

    The tool would understand the object type and automatically add the following to the top of the file:

    DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS <SchemaName1.ProcName1>
    DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS <SchemaName2.ProcName2>
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS <SchemaName1.TableName1>
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS <SchemaName2.TableName2>
    GO
    DROP SCHEMA IF EXISTS <SchemaName1>
    DROP SCHEMA IF EXISTS <SchemaName2>

  3. Offer refactor option that fully qualifies object names with schema. I know the option is there to do this when typing, ensuring aliased/qualified names. However, one feature in SQL Prompt from RG that is pretty amazing is the option to "refactor-qualify", and it will parse all the object schema names and ensure your proc/table/view/etc calls have the schema name in front of them. This is considered a good practice, but doing manually is very time intensive.

  7. 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. in the ssms object explorer, many of us regularly right click on tables to select top 1000 rows, which opens a new query window with an editable query script. visual studio's sql object explorer has no such functionality besides view data which forces you into a designer-based edit mode.

  9. 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'

  10. Currently SQL Complete notification (like "Uncommitted transaction" and "Query execution completed") show up and disappear. It would be great to have them on a panel similar to "Document Sessions", so you can review them later.

  11. As per Oracle SQL Developer ability to select a row of data and have it displayed in a column. Makes viewing a large row of data a lot easier.

  13. I often find when writing queries in the Sql editor that I want to see a sample of data from the table I'm working with. It would by good if I could right click on the table name in the text editor and have a 'select top 100' option in the popup menu

    You could use the snippets functionality of dbForge SQL Complete.

    The snippet can be as follows:
    SELECT TOP $count$ *
    FROM $schema$.$table_name$

  14. I like execute-current-statement functionality, but when I disable code completion then execute-current-statement functionality stops working.

  15. When running a query via "Execute Current Statement", it doesn't run if there are variables referenced. Instead you have to highlight the variable + query to get it to run. It would be nice if the variables were automatically included in the execution

  19. when typing out the values for an insert statement
    SSMS should popup an infotip very much like when inserting parameter for functions in Visual studio C# code.
    e.g. After typing the , (comma). SSMS should show a popup
    Insert into Person.Address
    (
    AddressLine1
    , AddressLine2
    ,City
    ,StateProvinceID
    )
    Values
    (
    ,N''
    ,N''
    ,N''
    , __________________________

    #

    StateprovinceID int not NULL #

    _________________________#

    ^ popUP

  20. How about a feature which would take a SELECT result, declare a Temp Table / Table Variable based on the schema of the result, and generate INSERT INTO statements?

    I do this often when comparing data across disparate systems where the source data is scripted into a table variable to be compared in the destination system. I use a combination of CONCATs and a WHILE loop to handle the need for a trailing comma (if using VALUE), or trailing UNION if using SELECTs as insert into source.
