A great article, I was really looking forward to intellisense being available in sql 2005 until they decided to drop it.

I can see this being a useful in our environment and should make my life a little easier

PromptSQL looks like a slick little Intellisense program. For $25, it's a great deal if Intellisense is the *only* feature you're looking for. I have to plug ApexSQL's Edit program, though. It has Intellisense and *so* much more.

I couldn't get it to popup consistently. Has anyone that has tried the product with mixed results been able to fix that?

I beta-tested the app and bought it almost as soon as the buy link was available. It worked great for me under Query Analyzer, SSMS beta and SSMS release. I don't use VS much for SQL, so can't really comment on that. I did notice the SQL Login prompt a couple of times, but mostly if I had network trouble (or in one instance had to alias my machine).

The programmer was always very quick to respond to my suggestions and requests for help. I'd recommend contacting him with details of your problem if you're having trouble. Be sure to capture a log first - that's not enabled by default.

Atadore's running a list of suggestions/bug fixes on his site as well. You can suggest new features or check on the status of existing requests to see if they will be in the next version. He's implemented several of the ideas already. I also find it cool that he's not a SQL Server guy. He's a programmer who saw this opportunity and developed the idea.

Only change I'm waiting for now is a minor tweak that will display columns when you expand something in the actual column order. Atadore has a minor bug in 1.2 that sorts columns treating the order as a character instead of an int. He wrote back and explained that it was missed in testing, but fixed for the next release.

For the $25 this cost, it was well worth it. Here's hoping that he doesn't get snatched up by some large company that will boost the license cost through the roof. :-)

You may have to adjust the sensitivity on how quickly it displays. The default setting for the pop-up boxes and tool tips is 400 ms. Some people want it to pop-up immediately and you can do so by reducing the number for the delays.

Aye, I love Apex SQL's Edit program as well. However, PromptSQL fits a nice niche: want IntelliSense but without the expenditure of cost for another environment? PromptSQL takes care of it. This works out well, too, if you don't want to switch because of personal preference to the Microsoft provided tools. Some people just prefer those tools to any others but would like IntelliSense.

Instead of posting comments like this, can you explain some of your issues with the product? For folks trying to make a decision on whether or not to plunk down some money, this kind of comment doesn't offer them any additional information one way or the other.

I've looked at a number of SQL Intellisense programs and chose "SQL Assist" based on two features - templates and sql formatting. Their Templates are extremely powerful and configurable. SQL formatting is very good and is useful when I post some long query that I get from Profiler.

Down side: It runs only on Visual Studio for the moment.
