  1. I would like to be able to use a different format for the DATE predefined literals than YYYY-MM-DD. It would be helpful to include one for YYYYMMDD ... or have literals for YEAR, MONTH, and DAY so I could create my own combination from them.

  2. It can possibly be done with the 'snippet', but when I hit Ctrl- N in SSMS, it would be great if 'my' standard template opened. This allows me have the necessary 'set' options pre configured etc

  3. Provide for MULTIPLE TAB ROWS like TabsStudio has. This way there's no need for the file menu drop-down list, no need to manually pin tabs, the tabs keep stable order.

    Thanks

  4. Within SSMS, allow for the saving of filters.

    Justification:
    Particularly within large databases, often there is a reoccurring need to work with just a subset of tables. Sometimes, within different contexts, the particular subset changes. Being able to easily apply commonly used filters can allow increased productivity by eliminating frictional work (e.g. scrolling and hunting). Additionally, when filters across object types can be applied, there can be a lot of power. For example, being able to filter a particular set of SQL Agent Jobs, associated tables, and procedures related to those jobs, allows a troubleshooting developer to quickly set into…

  5. The standard filtering in Management Studio Object Explorer is rudimentary at best. I lack the ability to select multiple values, and use drop downs to do so. Or even better, use complex queries (with and/or/not), and maybe even save and reuse these for daily administration (much like snippets).

  6. Formatting for rownumber() seems to have issues with breaking up the line. I don't know if the parser is evaluating it as a possible subquery, but it would be great to have the option for a single line or wrapped line rownumber(). A row_number() statement on 4-5 lines seems to be a little confusing.

    Could you please provide us a concrete example demonstrating this and describe it in more detail?

  7. 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 .

  8. When installing an upgrade, my additions to the snippets manager are maintained. However, I would like the option to keep all edits I've made to the default set of snippets as well.

    We just checked and confirm that changes made in the snippets are preserved when upgrading dbForge.

  9. the original sql statment:

    SELECT *
    FROM T1 RIGHT JOIN T2 ON T1.ID1=T2.ID1

    after reorganize

    SELECT *
    FROM T2 LEFT JOIN T1 ON T2.ID1=T1.ID1

  10. I want to be able to mark cells in the results panel. I often have SSMS open on one screen, and some spreadsheet or notepad open on another. I can select the cells, but then that selection is no longer visible once I go to the other window. I should be able to change the background color or a cell in the results pane by right clicking, and/or keyboard command.

  11. hi, I work with MS SQL Managemenet System and a lot of *.sql files for updating databases

    to my specific file can have a lot of lines of code (up to 1000 lines) and navigation and reading becomes tragic - I always manually collapse (press on [-] next to block name) all blocks like CREATE PROCEDURE, CREATE FUNCTION

    I really love your SQL Document Outline feature

    so you can handle another feature 'Collapse all blocks to definition' and simplify the life of a lot of db coders

    Will be glad to be among your clients
    Thank you and good luck,…

  12. This feature will allow set or clear bookmark on a line of SQL code, and allow move to successive bookmarked lines. as in Textpad (Ctrl + F2) and (Shift + F2).

  14. For example, when I attempt to write out this query:

    SELECT t.Column1 FROM dbo.Table1 t

    As soon as I type "SELECT t." the "t" turns into whatever object name matches t the closest (in my database's case, it's some random UDF). I want to write "t.Column1" before I've specified what t is.

  16. To prevent a snippet from getting inserted when the alias is the same as a snippet. Many times I will start a query and an alias is the same as the snippet. When i hit tab or enter that snippet in inserted in place of the alias. This is especially true when you have SSMS Tools installed and many of the snippets from it are one letter (s for select, e for execute and so on)

  18. Click in Document Outline window on some outline shows code line in sql file. But it would be nice to highlight encapsulated outline after clicking in sql code file on some code line. Therefore the position in navigation tree will be clear everytime.

  20. Current formatting:

    ON e.ModifiedDate = a.ModifiedDate AND e.rowguid = a.rowguid

    Expected:

    ON (e.ModifiedDate = a.ModifiedDate AND e.rowguid = a.rowguid)
