SQL Formatter Add-In for SSMS

Find useful tips for SQL Server and SSMS on my blog:

If you want to support the development of new SSMS addins or simply like the existing ones, please click the following link

Addin: DataScripter

This Addin for SQL Server Management Studio 2008 allows you to generate INSERT statements for all values of a table easily. Just select Script Data as from the context menu of the table and choose one of the options
  • INSERT: Insert statements without column names are generated
  • INSERT with column names: should by obvious ;-)

Addin: ObjectFinder

ObjectFinder will perform a fulltext search over your Stored Procedures, Functions and Triggers. You can easily find a object that contains a string (e.g. a table name is referenced in a stored procedure) and open it's definition.

Addin: Fulltext Manager for SQL Express

This Addin for SQL Server Management Studio allows you to manage your fulltext catalogs easily. It even works for SQL Server Express editions, so now you can use a nice GUI instead of unhandy SQL commands.

If you missed the Storage node in your Object Explorer, you can now use this addin!
