When I’m in SQL Server Management Studio and I click the “New Query” button, my Query Window comes up like this:
/* <ScriptFileName, SYSNAME, ScriptFileName>.sql
Purpose: <Purpose, SYSNAME, Purpose>
Author: <Author, SYSNAME, Buck Woody>
Last Edited: <LastEdited, SYSNAME, LastEdited>
Instructions: <Instructions, SYSNAME, Instructions>
/* End <ScriptFileName, SYSNAME, ScriptFileName>.sql */
Then I just press CTRL-SHIFT-M and enter the name of the script file, the purpose and so on.
I was recently asked how I have that come up every time.
Just locate the file called Sqlfile.SQL. It’s normally in:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\SqlWorkbenchProjectItems\Sql
And edit it to have whatever you want. If you want the replaceable parameters like I have, just put whatever you want in this format:
<ParameterName, ParameterType, DefaultValue>
Never mind the last comment. On x64 boxes, it's located at
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\SqlWorkbenchProjectItems\Sql".
OK, now another change. :) For SQL Server 2012, I found it on my system here: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Binn\ManagementStudio\SqlWorkbenchProjectItems\Sql"
Brilliant, thanks Buck, just what I was looking for!
Thanks for the pointer! Just an FYI: this does not affect the default template used in the Object Explorer's right-click "New Query" menu.
