Design Query in Editor bug

July 3, 2008

Ok, so real database developers don’t use the graphical “Design Query in Editor”… yeah, I know. Sure, there’s the odd time when you’re typing a query and you don’t have an Object Explorer (eg, in SSIS) and a moment of weakness sees you hit “Build Query” to save some typing, but in general I encourage people to write their queries in Management Studio SSMS and then copy them into the SSIS dialog. I was showing someone some of the frustrations I have with the graphical editor, and came across a real beauty – repeated predicates.

I logged a bug at the Connect site, where I wrote the rest of the details. You should vote for this – there may be a time when you click “Build Query” to avoid some typing, and you don’t want to look like an idiot for repeating the same line multiple times.

    My kids repeat the same line multiple times in their queries, got a fix for that?
