Copy Results Grid data to Excel (as xml Spreadsheet)
Copying data from Results grid to Excel via built-in Ctrl-C command results in loss of data type information. Excel needs to analyze inserted data and to "guess" it's type and regional
SSMSBoost allows you to copy Results Grid data in XML Spreadsheet format, preserving data type and precision information. Strings remain Strings, DateTime remains DateTime and Numeric
and Money data keep their precision and scale.
If you like this feature, make sure you read about Results Grid Scripting
feature: it is much more flexible and customizable and designed to output really bit amounts of data.
