SQL Prompt - a short introduction (4:14)

Introduction to SQL Prompt

Writing SQL code by hand, even with IntelliSense, is frankly pretty dull

So we made SQL Prompt, which isn’t

An add-in for SQL Server Management Studio and Visual Studio, SQL Prompt strips away the repetition of coding.

As well as autocompleting your code, SQL Prompt takes care of formatting, object renaming, and other distractions, so you can concentrate on how the code actually works.

Whether you need to write, refactor, or explore database code, find out how SQL Prompt makes it effortless by trying it free for 28 days.

Key features

Autocomplete does the work for you – even for JOINs

As well as making the most common queries, such as SELECTs and INSERTs, quick to write, SQL Prompt completes JOIN conditions for you automatically. You don't have to remember any column names or aliases.

Share your snippets

Type even less by adding your own code snippets to the customizable library and sharing them with your team. That way, everyone can enjoy even faster, easier coding.

Save and recover lost tabs in SSMS

With tab history, you can save, preview, and rename tabs – and restore tabs previously opened in SSMS. You can pick up work where you left off and start coding again in seconds.

Safely refactor SQL code

Rename objects without breaking dependencies and encapsulate SQL code as a stored procedure.

One-click SQL code formatting

Make code readable and keep developers working to the same standards, with SQL Prompt's single-click, customizable code reformatting.

New: Actions list

Wrap your code in a block, toggle comments, and more with SQL Prompt's new Ctrl-key actions list.

Updated support for Visual Studio

You can now use even more of SQL Prompt's features in Visual Studio 2015. Check out the Features Grid for more detail.

Updated frequently, based on your feedback

SQL Prompt's beta is updated regularly based on feedback from the forums and SQL Prompt UserVoice. If there's a feature you'd love to see, just let us know.

Still not convinced?

There aren’t many people more qualified at programming SQL than SQL Server MVPs Steve Jones and Grant Fritchey.
