  1. There are some identifiers and variables we'd like to force with CAPTITALS regardless of the formatting rules.

    Similar to the "General > Available prefixes:", could we have a "Force word formatting" option where we can enter these special word types? ie. TranSid ==> TRANSID

  2. There may be times when you would like to switch the formatting for a particular section of code because the global settings would not be most appropriate.

    For example let's stay in SELECT statements you have "Stack Columns" checked with "Simple List" selected. This may be the desired format for 90% of the cases, however when there is a table with a large number of columns(50+), it could be more beneficial to view them on a single line so to see the query as a whole.

    If you could add a comment before the query
    --@Begin-SQLComplete Select-SelectList-StackColumns = True; Select-SelectList-StackColumns-Option=SingleLine…

  3. Should have provision to configure Query Format
    like (Each column to be placed in separate Line,
    Join condition in single Line,
    etc.)
    or
    Indenting is missing in formating

  4. Those that came before me had a habit of not adding these and it becomes a pain point when debugging.

    --ex of how it looks like now
    INSERT INTO desttable
    (
    id
    ,name
    ,phone
    )
    SELECT
    code AS id
    ,user
    ,tel
    FROM origintable

    --what I would like the addon to do
    INSERT INTO desttable
    (
    id
    ,name
    ,phone
    )
    SELECT
    code AS id
    ,user AS name
    ,tel AS phone
    FROM origintable

  5. Currently, Create Type <name> as table (
    doesn't use any formatting rules.
    Can we have this use the same rules as CREATE TABLE?

  6. I would be helpful to be able to hide ID or partitioning columns that may not ever be needed when selecting data. They just get in the way when expanding SELECT * but are still necessary to the table structure.

  7. Add an option to group database entities (tables, views, stored procedures, etc.) by schema rather than flat alphabetical. Click +/- sign to expand or collapse schemas.

  9. When you select something in the SQL code and it selects all the other instances of it - e.g. a variable name, can you place coloured markers in the scroll bar of all the selected items, also for when you do a find as well. This is really useful feature in visual studio.

  11. When generating the INSERT INTO statement after typing INSERT INTO [TableName] and hitting tab, it would be helpful in the VALUES list, in addition to showing the default value, if the column name was included. For example -
    INSERT INTO Users
    VALUES (DEFAULT /ID/, '' /FirstName/, '' /LastName/)

    This way, for wide tables, you don't have to count column to keep track of which column you are working with.

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

    Here is an example:

    SELECT
    -> [alias]->-> -> -> =t.col1
    -> ,[differentlen] -> =t.col1
    FROM table
    name t

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

  13. There is a choice on Options > General named Highlight Occurrences. I don't like the way this looks with my color scheme. Suggestion: allow me to change the default highlight color or document where that color comes from in SMMS's color settings.

  14. Currently SQL Complete only provides IntelliSense for linked servers with the server type of SQL Server. Please add support for other linked server types, such as Oracle, generic OLE DB, etc.

  15. In Visual Studio there is a plug that allows you to have the document tabs down the right hand side, which when you have loads of files open is very useful, especially now we have widescreen monitors. However SSMS is behind the times and the tabs along the top isn't enough. Can you please add a feature to display the sql tabs down the side rather than the top.

  16. replace "indent GROUP BY Phrase" with 2 options:
    1) "Indent GROUP BY Keyword"
    2) "Indent GROUP BY columns"

    the current options will now allow for formatting flexibility as it does for the where keyword/condition

  17. Sorting the fields in a INSERT INTO statement in the same order as the SELECT statement of the query, taking into account the column aliases. Thus

    INSERT INTO table
    (columnA, columnB, columnC)

    SELECT foo AS columnB, columnC, bar AS columnA
    FROM table2

    becomes
    INSERT INTO table
    (columnB, columnC, columnA)

    SELECT foo AS columnB, columnC, bar AS columnA
    FROM table2

    With a few columns it's no big deal to do it manually but with 20 columns it is.
    Displaying a hint if columns are missing is also welcome.

  19. My company uses SQL code embedded into xml documents which is edited in visual studio, so to format the entire files would be bad. The sql formatter in SSMS is outstanding. It would be nice to be able to format just a selection of text inside visual studio with the sql formatter using my setup profile

  20. It would be nice to have smarter subquery intellisense that works like the joining intellisense that suggest matches based on column names.

    E.g.
    SELECT * FROM Users WHERE EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM UserRoles WHERE Users.UserID = (**Pop up intellisense suggesting UserRoles.UserID*) UserRoles.UserID AND UserRoles.RoleID = 1)

    E.g.2
    E.g.
    SELECT UserID, UserName, (SELECT COUNT(1) FROM UserRoles WHERE Users.UserID = (**Pop up intellisense suggesting UserRoles.UserID*) UserRoles.UserID) AS NumberOfRoles FROM Users
