"Better way to beautify your code and make it more readable and maintable"

There are many SQL formatter tools that helps you to indent or format your large SQL code. These tools are easily available to download for free or licensed. Some of these tool provide you an option to specify 1) The case - lowercase or uppercase for the keywords or identifiers or keep it as is.

2) Level or width of indentation.

3) Keep or remove the comments in the code.

4) Use tabs instead of spaces to indent etc.

Highly used SQL formatter tools are :

Atom Beautify

Poor Man's T-SQL formatter

SQLBeautifier

SQL Enlight

RazorSQL

ApexSQL Refactor

Some tools that provide more features and options are paid and costly, for example : dbForge SQL Complete for $149.95

We usually do large codes and SQL formatter helps us to make it more readable. I sometimes use online SQL formatter service which do not gives you much options but well serves the purpose.

"Simple method for standardizing code"

What do you like best?

The plugin for SQL Server Formatter is easy to install and integrate into SSMS and Microsoft SQL Server. Formatting code at the push of a button is a handy technique for formatting code and structuring queries, and particularly useful for documentation purposes when sharing production code with the team.

What do you dislike?

I have no major complaints with SQL Formatter for SQL Server except that I find myself using the code formatter within Notepad ++ more often, simply since I tend to work on test scripts and queries that will move into production via Notepad ++ instead of SQL Server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Really help to create sql and also analyze big sql view or store procedure."

What do you like best?

- Format function. This function really helps to cut my investigation time, especially for existing sql object.

I use this software at analyzing unknown but not standardized sql views, flattened stored procedures and encrypted object after decrypting.

- Auto-complete function.

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes I dislike Default format adjustment but the customization is very flexible.

I would like to export the configuration and share it with other developers. This problem might be just I don't know.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is so easy to install and use. If considering this software, recommend to start trial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Make investigation time faster.

- Standardize SQL format. This would work for code review process at development.
