  1. This will interface beautifully with the rename option that is included with SQL complete. Frequently i'll copy code sets that use two different objects or start as table reads and later become a read from a temp table. being table to change the "from" and easily being able to the rename the alias/table to the new source and have all other references to it be updated as well would be great

    Could you please provide us an example of this?

    You can send the reply straight to our support system at alexaATdevartDOTcom and supportATdevartDOTcom .

  2. When joining tables I often get suggestions by SQL Complete for which tables to join. This is extremely useful and saves me a lot of time. Often times however there are multiple joins I want to make to different tables. But I can only select one join at a time. Selecting multiple suggestions with a ctrl+left click or something similar in the suggestions box would be a great addition for my workflow.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. It would be very helpful to be able to right click on a tab in SSMS and have the option to rename it.

    I currently have "SSMS Tools" installed to be able to accomplish this. Would be great to have the option in SQL Complete and be able to uninstall "SSMS Tools"

  6. I love the "format document" and "format selection" features and would be interested in a "unwrap document" and "unwrap selection" feature.

    I use Notepad++ to do it currently but it is required when trying to paste SQL Code in Visual Studio.

    All it does is turn the code into 1 line...

    Thanks
    Yann

  7. When searching in execution history, the search value is used pretty quickly after you stop typing. This means that you have to wait for the search to finish even if you weren't done typing the search string. It also means that if you have a typo, you have to wait for the search to finish before you can correct it. I keep a long history of executed SQL, so each search takes a while to run.

    In my opinion, it would be better to have a dedicated "Search" button so that you could submit your search string when you're finished…

  8. I would like the options to enable such a setting that when procedures, functions, etc. are opened for editing, all regions would automatically collapse. There could also be a keyboard shortcut that collapses and expands all regions

  9. Example 1:
    If you are using a NOT declared variable @var1, @var1 will get underlined and there is a tooltip with the error.
    On the tooltip there could be a suggestion: "add declare @var1 int".
    Example 2:
    If you are executing a procedure and you are missing some mandatory parameters then there could be the solution "add missing parameters" on the tooltip

  11. 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

  14. SQL Prompt has a fantastic feature that allows selected text to be wrapped up by pressing control + selecting snippet that utilizes the SELECTEDTEXT value. This is great for wrapping up text in "Begin try", "comment blocks" and other selection oriented snippets.

  15. 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.

  16. I would like the option to specify that queries under a certain number of characters be formatted to be on a single line. This would also apply to subqueries so that if they are over the specified limit it follows the formatting rules already in place for subqueries but places simple subqueries on a single line.

    So

    SELECT
    *
    FROM
    TABLE
    WHERE
    COL1 = 5;

    would become

    SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE COL1 = 5;

    and

    SELECT
    COL1,
    COL2,
    COL3,
    COL4,
    CASE WHEN COL5 = 50 THEN 'A' ELSE 'B' END
    FROM
    TABLE
    WHERE
    COL1 IN (
    SELECT
    COLB
    FROM…

  17. I very often use T-SQL to create a series of T-SQL commands to be run.
    I need to ctrl-C+open new window+ctrl-V+F5 to accomplish that, and it works.
    However, a nice feature would be to just be able to select the commands in the query result window, and choose "execution" from the shortcut menu, and have SQL Complete do all the additional work automagically.

  18. An option to only allow editing a single instance of a Stored Procedure, Function, etc. (and perhaps the name in the tab or top of file). Or at least a warning if this procedure is already open in another tab.

  19. You already allow a line break before FROM.

    Allows me to specify the number of line breaks.
    in my case i wish to use 2 line breaks after the select list
    i.e.

    SELECT
    Column1
    , Column2
    , Column3

    FROM
    SampleTable AS ST

    WHERE
    ST.Column1 > 1

  20. SQL Prompt allows quick editing of snippets by typing a variable name wrapped in dollar signs and automatically adds this to the bottom list of variables to edit. This makes editing a snippet very easy, and doesn't require as many steps as the current SQL complete UI for adding custom variables. Consider evaluating using this type of simplified editing experience.
