Build 126.96.36.1994 introduces a new auto-alias feature. First of all – LOVE THIS IDEA – thank you.
Typing a statement like:
automatically changes to
SELECT FROM Inventory IN
Typing a statement like
automatically changes to:
SELECT FROM [InvoiceHeader] IH
It seems to use either the first two characters in the case of a single table name or the first character of each word or each “CapitalizedWord”. Great idea.
The only problem with this approach however is when the suggested alias ends up being a reserved keyword. For example, in that Inventory table example above, the Alias “IN” is not something I can actually use because it’s a reserved keyword. So I have to go edit it anyway, making the feature a bit less useful.
In such examples it would actually be better to only use 1 character, or to add an extra character instead.
For “Inventory” either I or INV would be better than IN.
But thanks for adding this.
