Am I the only one who thought the question was worded a bit strange?

However you would not like to get the results back in a grid


Anyway, as stated above, the "correct" answer is clearly incorrect.

Hope this helps...

You have the only working copy of SQL Server 2012 where CTRL+SHIFT+D actually does something?

If you have results to text and you WOULD NOT want them back to grid, the best answer is DO NOTHING... and it will stay as is.

Definitely, that negative did not help, and I agree with others as BOL is wrong... tool tip text over the button itself stays Ctrl+D.

Maybe he's running SQL Server 2012 QOTD Edition? ;-)

Also Ctrl+Shft+D does do something, it refreshes the cache in SQL Prompt, which is funny considering this is a Red-Gate site. Opportunity for a product plug there :-)

Interesting question, Steve, thanks.


I'm glad I'm not the only one to get lost in the double negatives.

It looks like there's more than one problem with Microsoft's SQL documentation. They do have a bit of it to maintain, but you'd think they would get the docs for one of their flagship products done well.

Yes, the documentation does say CTRL + Shift + D however, as far as I can tell, this does nothing when using SSMS 2012. CTRL + D does change the output to grid - when the query is next executed. Also, if you go to the menu "Query-->Results To" it shows you the keyboard shortcut for "Results to Grid" which is "Ctrl+D"

When I use CTRL + Shift + D on its own in SSMS 2014, nothing happens because SSMS is waiting for the second key of a chord (in the status line at the bottom of the screen you get the message "(Ctrl+Shift+D) was pressed. Waiting for second key of chord...".

I get it. Ctrl+Shift+D would not get the results back in a grid, however, Ctrl+D will.

Testing, experience, or a quick look at the menus in SSMS (Query > Results To > Results to Grid Ctrl+D) will all trump the documentation.

Fix the doc and give us back our point.
