on suggestion for join : Is it possible to have
SELECT * 
FROM table1 a
JOIN table2 b on b.id = a.id

-- instead of 

SELECT * 
FROM table1 a
JOIN table2 b on a.id = b.id


in my opinion , after the ON, it's more clear to put the JOIN KEY of the table b first

    If I can add a hearty "PLEASE DO THIS"... I go back and edit every JOIN I code for this precise reason...

    Thanks for adding the enhancement request... When does voting start?

  • I'll just add my 5 cents, if you change it please make it an option, as we need it to stay working just like it is.

    Absolutely agree with the "please make it an option"...
