  • Seldom Used Keyboard Tricks

      I was giving an internal talk on SSMS productivity trips and there were a few that I believe are seldom used but can be a real time or keystroke saver that I would like to mention. To the best of my knowledge these will work in any version of SSMS from at least 14.0 onward and likely earlier but I can’t verify older versions at this time. ...

  • Source Control for SSMS

      It would be awesome if we could use source control such as TFS directly in SSMS like we can in Visual Studio but at the moment we can’t for the reasons explained by Ken Van Hyning in this blog post.  However he also explains how we can manually add some components that will give us the ability to use TFS with SSMS in the mean ...

    I have been on a SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (aka PDW) training course this week and was interested to learn that you can't (yet) use SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) against PDW, instead they ship a 3rd party tool called Nexus Chameleon. This was a bit of a disappointment at the beginning of the week (I'd prefer parity across SQL Server ...

  • Useful, free resources for SQL Server
