No Intellisense for Linked Server connection to MySQL ODBC

Hi. I have been using SQL Prompt for awhile and one of the best feature I like about it is the fact that Intellisense works even on Linked Server to other MSSQL databases.

Recently however, I have set up Linked server to MySQL ODBC connections and I noticed that Intellisense is no longer returning the table names and column names in the predictive boxes.

I then tested this to other ODBC connection. I set up Firebird (DB2) and Oracle and Intellisense seems to be working for these (only for table names, not columns but that's better than nothing).

Is there a way that we can get it to work for MySQL ODBC connections as well?

    Hi Cathlynn,
    We don't officially support linked servers other than to MSSQL servers at the moment so I'm a little surprised oracle works at all. I could see how this would be a really useful feature if we did support it though!

    The best place for a feature request like this is our UserVoice page if you'd like to open a new request. It really helps us when prioritising which features to work on next.
