WHERE-clause alignments

GHauanGHauan Posts: 13 New member
Hi.

Is there a way to have SQL Prompt align each element after WHERE on the same column as WHERE? Like this:

SELECT *
FROM dbo.Anlegg
WHERE AnleggsId = 1
AND StartDate <= getdate()
AND StopDate IS NULL;

The way it is now, I only get it formatted with the AND part aligned with the Anleggsid in WHERE-line.
(I tried to show how it was in this post, but the indentation was removed when posting.)

Is there an option setting to fix this?

    Hi GHauan,

    Thanks for the suggestion. You can insert code tags on here to keep your text formatted.

    Could I confirm you want to style your code like this? Are you using the new formatting options (enabled in experimental features)?
    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.Anlegg
    WHERE AnleggsId = 1
      AND StartDate <= getdate()
      AND StopDate IS NULL;
    

    Best wishes,

    Hi Michael

    The way I want it to be, is the way it is in my original post. Meaning that the AND start on same column as the WHERE:
    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.Anlegg
    WHERE Anleggsid = 1
    AND StartDate <= getdate()
    AND StopDate IS NULL;
    

    I have not tried the experimental features.

    The way it is formatted today is like this (and this is not how I want it):
    SELECT *
    FROM dbo.Anlegg
    WHERE 	Anleggsid = 1
           AND StartDate <= getdate()
           AND StopDate IS NULL;

    Hi GHauan,

    We support the style you want as default with our new formatting styles.

    You can turn these on by selecting "SQL Prompt > Options... > Labs > Experimental Features > Use new formatting styles"

    Please let us know if you have any trouble :smile:

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hello guys,

    I am using SQL Prompt 9.2.2 and the alignment of the where clause as GHauan had commented is not yet available.

    In version 9.2.2, I tried to enable the option "SQL Prompt> Options ...> Labs> Experimental Features> Use new formatting styles" as Michael commented, but does not have this option.

    Do you have any idea when this option will be implemented?

    Example

    select *
    from table
    where condition1 = 1
        and condition2 = 2

    Thank you

    I am trying to setup my style using 10.0.6 and can't seem to get the AND to line up with the WHERE.  What setting would I use to get the following:

    SELECT *
    FROM table AS t
    WHERE t.col1=1
    AND t.col2=2;

    I had it before, but had to rebuild my machine and lost my old style.
