When stored procedures are entered/compiled using the Microsoft SQL
Server v4.21 client ISQL/W, leading whitespace is stripped from the
source code. A rather bad habit, IMHO.
I've got two systems to maintain -- both loaded with stored procedures
that have been munged this way. I'm putting the source code for the
database into a source code control system. Since I don't trust the
original sources (since I have no way of knowing what has been altered
in the database on the fly), I'm generating a script for each object
to be placed into the source code control system.
Source code with all the indentation/whitespace removed is pretty ugly
and hard to read. And I hate reformatting it manually. Consequently,
I'm looking for a formatter/pretty-printer program for TRANSACT-SQL.
Preferably one that allows user-specified formatting styles.
I've searched the WWWeb and all the software archives that I know of,
but to no avail. Such a critter doesn't seem to exist. Before I go to
the trouble of writing one....
Has anybody written such a program? If you have, would you be willing
Thanks in advance.
