Compress tables

By Francesco Quaratino,

How to use: After choosing database and the compression type, you have to write the schema, table, index to compress. Obviously if you write the word "All" you mean all the object (es. alla the indexes of all the tables in a specified schema).
If you check "Exec compression", all the objects choosed will be compressed. Otherwise, only ALTER INDEX statements will be displayed and then you'll be able to export them for executing later.
