Currently our programming teams use Visual SoureSafe for source control. We have to export our SP's (and views) to a text file and then import them into SoureSafe.

Can you recommend any alternate products that have true support for SP's and Views?

TIA,

Bill

Hi Bill,

You should take a look at

Imceda's SQL IDE, it is pretty much becoming the defacto SQL Server IDE product and it has excellent integration into VSS. We also produce the fastest and most feature rich database compare utility.

If you use the Visual Studio IDE to edit your SQL you get full SourceSafe integration, and can also use the debugger

hope this helps

Is that Visual Studio.NET or Visual Studio 6?


When in doubt - test, test, test!

I have found that getting programmers to work with SQL sproc scripts on disk gives a very high level of control. This means you can use a script to extract changes from Source Safe and then apply them in bulk to the test or production environment.

We use these scripts for all database changes including table structure changes and bulk updates.

All I need is a WSH script I have written which runs recursively over directories in sorted order invoking OSQL on all scripts and logging any problems.

I believe the SQL Server SP integration into Visual Studio IDE requires the Enterprise Edition of Visual Studio. In Professional version you can see the database objects but don't have the modification capabilities (nor the T-SQL Debugger!)that exist in the Enterprise Edition.

Just tryuing to clarify the issue further.
