Sql Prompt 3.6. SQL 2000. Query Analyzer.

SELECT * FROM #TempTable

causes Sql Prompt to always reformat as...

SELECT * FROM [#TempTable]

...even when "Surround identifiers with brackets" is not checked.

  • Hi Brian,

    This was a bug in Prompt 3.6 that has been fixed in our 3.7 version. You can recieve the 3.7 build by directly mailing [email protected]

    Thank you.

    Hi Brian,


    I'm 99% sure this is fixed in 3.7. The reason I say this is that somebody reported it all of half an hour after we released 3.6 and I was so irritated we'd missed it that I fixed it there and then, but wasn't able to check in the fix for some time. It's certainly not behaving like this in the 4.0 codebase I have on my machine right now, which at present has very few differences from 3.7.

    Details at:

    Please contact [email protected] directly for download instructions.

    The behaviour seems to be that if "Surround identifiers with brackets" is checked then the table name will be surrounded, whereas if it's not checked, then as you'd expect the table name is not surrounded with brackets.

    Hope that helps.


    Thanks,
    Bart

  • OK. Got the update from support. Will let you know after I have a chance to try it.

    Is there any reason why 3.7 would be less stable than 3.6 or present other issues? Is there any potential tradeoff in upgrading?

    Hi Brian,


    There shouldn't be. In fact it should be more stable. Basically the only bug fixes that went in there were for this particular issue, plus a number of exceptions/crashes that have been reported in 3.6 and earlier releases over the past months.


    Thanks,
