Create simple macros in SSMS re-using existing commands
SSMSBoost add-in allows you to combine existing SSMS commands (and also commands of other add-ins) and create this way simple macros. The best example are 2 macros that we
have already created for you:
Execute to Grid
- executes statements and outputs results to Grid pane
Execute to Text
- executes statements and outputs results to Text pane
For example, Execute to Grid
is created as a sequence of 2 existing SSMS commands:
Query.ResultsToGrid and Query.Execute. When macro is created, you are free to assign shortcuts and place the button on the toolbar to speed up the access to the functionality.
If you are looking for the easy to read list of all commands, available in SSMS, use our SSMS Commands Dump
For your reference we have listed all SSMSBoost commands on the separate Settings page named "Commands". Along all available commands you see assigned shortcuts and can easily redefine them.
Be creative, help yourself!
