If you like to copy-and-paste the text output from SQL SELECT statements, but don't like the wasted space of trailing blanks in wide varchar columns, you might find this script helpful. It will run your SQL SELECT statement and output the results so that the trailing blanks in varchar columns is neatly trimmed off.
Take a statement like this, run in the NorthWind database:
SELECT CustomerId, Address, City, Region, PostalCode FROM Customers WHERE Country = 'USA'
and run it like this:
EXEC spd_Tool_Reformat_Query_Results 'SELECT CustomerId, Address, City, Region, PostalCode FROM Customers WHERE Country = ''USA'''
select statement with case
T-sql Select statement
