Did anyone else notice the date for this QOTD is a month in the future?

I'm fairly new to SQL Server so I may not be seeing it. ALT+F1 brings up nothing at all in management studio. Also, isn't sp_help used in code?

The link "SQL Server Management Studio Keyboard Shortcuts" is very helpful.

Alt+F1 acts a little different to sp_help. sp_help list specifics for an object while Alt+F1 list all objects in a selected database.

Did you really try this?

Just select a table name and press Alt+F1 and see the result...

Even though my Studio is set up for the shortcut, it doesn't do anything. Most probably because I've got a soft-KVM and that seems to blat most shortcuts just because it can. ;)

I'll have to try it at home.

I don't have SQL Server 2005 so I can't test, but according to the keyboard shortcut list on BOL (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174205.aspx) there is no ALT+F1 at all. Is this a custom keyboard shortcut?

Just select a table name and press Alt+F1, is that all I have to do? I click on a table name in the object explorer and pressed Alt+F1 and nothing happened, so I made a new query and put the table name in there (with and without the database name), and I received an error:

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near '.'.

So what do I need to do to see this? Does doing this in Management Studio Express 2005 not work?

PS. I see I wasn't the only one to confuse this with the "How Do I" under Help on the toolbar

EDIT:
Why is this QOTD for next month anyway? I know there is a question for this month, and that would have something to do with it.

You have to enclose the object name in double-quotes when using two-part names (include schema)..
like this : "dbo.spt_values" (in master).
