The supplied templates are also a great self-tuition tool for budding DBAs (and others! like moi for instance).
I try to set aside some time every session to browse through the supplied templates and 'dissect' a particular example to figure out what it's for and how it does it.
Had forgotten about the 'parameter filler' - thanks for the reminder!
Best wishes.

One of the annoyances of SSMS 2008 is that Ctrl-Shift-M no longer works.

Hmm. Cntrl Shift M. It works on the version of SSMS 2008 I have here, but maybe my version is a bit old (10.0.1600.22 ). I'd be surprised if they took it out as it goes way back. Mind you, they irritated me hugely by taking out the hotkey that flipped between windows in 2005. There is a way of redefining these keys via the registry, but you'd need to be both brave and desperate.

Interesting - I'm on the same version. The other shortcut combis all work ok though. I'd just assumed templates had been forgotten. hmmm...

Thanks Phil,

Templates have been a well-kept-secret from me. I have never used them. But I can see how they could really speed up some of my work. Much appreciated info.
