SQL Prompt Snippet Manager

Everyone in our department has SQL Prompt installed. You are able to write scripts faster using it. When you start to type it looks at the SQL Schema system views and supplies a list for you to choose from. It also uses the Snippet Manager to select shortcuts for commonly used statements. But did you know that you can add your own shortcuts? Just Select the Snippet Manager from the SQL Prompt menu item and add away. It takes a little effort to remember to use the snippet instead of just typing everything out. Typing only “scf” will produce “SELECT COUNT(*) FROM” to Count number of records returned by query. Typing three letters is much quicker. Take a few minutes to check it out. It will be worth your time.
