  1. Thanks for video. I've worked almost 9 years with Oracle databases and since two month I joined to new company where MS SQL Server is being used and it was really frustrating for me at the first glance. this video is going to help me getting easier familiar with IDE of MS SQL.

  2. Well, it would be great to follow the instructions and everything being said there but without an existing/accessible data base the commands will remain theoretical.

  3. How to add a server name at first. It's showing no server found while I am giving my system name And IP Address as well

  4. Brilliant! I’ve been working SQL Server since 7.0 and the various interfaces. I’ve been working with SSMS for so long that I thought, ‘eh, pretty certain I know my way around it I’ll check it out.’ I’m open to learning something to make me more efficient.
    ‘F7’ was quite interesting. Didn’t know that before this. I didn’t know you could drag “Columns” to the editor or hover over * to see the columns in the SELECT list.
    The clipboard ring was a new thing for me.
    I spend a lot of time tuning queries and in the execution plan. I’ve known about that little + for a while. Good to show others.
    Still tripping out over the ‘F7’ details.
    I typically write scripts to write scripts for me. Script out the dropping or creation of constraints, or any object, for that matter, generation of c# code for a stored procedure/function. It’s a lot faster to write a T-SQL statement to do the repetitive work for me. I give it an object name and milliseconds later, I can copy and paste.
