Sql Completes my life

Pros

SQL Complete is a great tool to help out in a huge database environment, it has made my life easier.

Cons

IT gets stuck from time to time as it needs to update the tables from time to time if there are multiple administrators working on the database.

This is the best out of the 3 professional tools that I've used

Pros

The ease and speed is what I like most about this application. I use it, primarily, to write and format SQL codes. I love that it has an execution history. I don't often use it but it's very convenient when the need arise. The other tools that I've used, for the same purpose, is Toad for SQL and Apex SQL. It's been too long since I've used Toad for SQL but its performance was comparable to SQL Complete. It's setup and features, however, was too many and too complex. Code formatting with SQL Complete is instantaneous vs Apex SQL which appears to run in a separate process and takes several seconds just to format. I tend to write and test several SQL statements on the same page thus I find it very useful that I can execute the current statement that my cursor is on rather than having to highlight it first.

Cons

One of the biggest feature that I use often and am forced to use a different package for that's missing from this app is the ability to copy the SQL statement so that I can use it in C#. I format the statement to make it easier to read but want to keep that formatting when converting to C# so I use a string builder to do something like below. When debugging, it's convenient to copy the sb output preformatted as well thus I don't have to reformat it. Imagine having to do that for over 20 lines of code, it becomes cumbersome hence I'm forced to use Apex SQL which has the feature that I needed. sb.AppendLine("SELECT * FROM Table") sb.AppendLine(" WHERE Field = 'something'")

Pros

It has a lot of good features that helps the development

Cons

Every damn time there's an upgrade some new problem appears,, it is a hazzle and I curse myself every time I decide to upgrade instead of ignoring the upgrade It is often slow, and sometimes it doesn't make any suggestions at all

Great product with one minor flaw

Pros

SQL Complete works as expected. It makes writing queries significantly easier and helps eliminate mistakes as you write your queries. The auto-complete feature is invaluable.

Cons

The main issue with this product is that every time it updates, it kills the user license, and you have to log in and release the hardware associated with your license and then re-activate the product. This activation issue happens every time there is an update to SQL Complete.

Great product for real SQL Developers

We write SQL all day, every day. SQL complete helps a lot. Also allows new employees to learn the system and naming convention much more quickly.

Pros

Intellisense works great. The intellisense build into SSMS does not work for databases with a lot of tables and fields. Automatic Joins for ON clause. If you use recommended naming convention for your SQL Server tables, SQL Complete is awesome.

Cons

Assigning keys to users. We have a team of 14 users. SQL Complete web admin pages does not allow me to name each user. Because it checks, it the admin screen could also have a last time the key was used.
