Question on Auto Fill

Hi,

I know this may sound stupid but I was wondering if someone could help me. When I type the name of the table for example in the stored procedure, it puts dbo automatically before the table. Same with the columns of the tables as well. Is there anyway to disable this? Please let me know how.

Regards,
JB

  • You should quantify your object most of the time, if not all the time really, especially if you use schema

    But it is an interesting question, I wonder what happens if a user logs under a limited schema and calls a proc with dbo.xxx in it, it'll probably fail

    You can turn off qualification of object names from the options menu.
    [SQL Prompt menu - options - Inserted Candidates - Formatting - Uncheck both 'Qualify object names' and 'Qualify column names']

  • Thank you for the response. I have disabled it now and it seems to work fine.

    If dbo owns all the stored proc then you will need permission to execute the stored proc and due to 'ownership chaining' in SQL 2005 you can get away by not having direct permissions for tables!
    So, in response to your question - no permissions it should fail.
