Here it is...the snippet migrator for all those who have been waiting to port your very own snippets from v3 to v4!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING NOTES BEFORE TRYING TO RUN THE SNIPPET MIGRATOR TOOL:
Use the tool only if you have any user-defined snippets created in v3 that you want to migrate to v4.
Before you can use the Snippet Migrator, you need to make sure that SQL Prompt is installed and the SQL Prompt snippet directory has been created.
To do this:
1) On the SQL Prompt 4 menu of your SQL editor (SSMS/VS/QA) select Snippet Manager
The Snippet Manager dialog box is displayed.
2) Close the Snippet Manager dialog box.
The Snippets folder is created in your Red Gate directory.
3) Exit your SQL editor, and ensure the SQL Prompt tray application is not running.
You can now use the Snippet Migrator.
Kindly note SQL Prompt 4 does not allow special characters or numbers in snippet names, so any snippets you have with these characters in the name will not be migrated.
Disclaimer: The Snippet Migrator is a standalone tool that is not supported by Red-Gate Software Ltd.
