SQL Server

Microsoft SQL Server powers your entire data estate by supporting structured and unstructured data sources. It builds on previous versions of SQL Server, which have been industry leading for four years in a row and a leader in TPC-E. It scales to petabytes of data and allows customers to process big data through PolyBase using T-SQL over any data. SQL Server has also been the least vulnerable database during the last seven years. SQL Server brings data insights with business intelligence capabilities that provide analytics at a fraction of the cost on any device along with advanced analytics with support for R and Python.


More details about SQL Server are available in the SQL Server documentation.

  5. SSMS 18.8 crashes when re-docking tabs

    When I un-dock a tab in SQL Server Management Studio and later attempt to re-dock it, SSMS crashes. This happens every time, and I can reproduce the problem at will. All I have to do is un-dock a tab (let's say, in order to view two SQL queries in different tabs side-by-side) and then attempt to re-dock it, and SSMS will crash. Looking at the Event Viewer, I find two successive error messages each time the crash happens (see the pasted messages below).

    Please fix this! It's wreaking havoc on my usual workflow. Thanks.

  8. SSMS 18.8 bacpac import fails generating indexes on SQL Express 2019

    Export, then import (as data-tier application) SQL Express 2019 database fails when enabling Non-Unique, Non-Clustered indexes. After several minutes, failure error is:
    "Error SQL72016: Online index operations can only be performed in Enterprise edition of SQL Server."
    If database contains no indexes (other than PK) then it works fine.
    This bug is new in SSMS 18.8. Earlier versions worked fine.

  10. SSMS 2017 Deutsch

    Zum dritten Mal SSMS-Setup-DEU installiert. Doch der SSMS 2017 ist immer nur in englischer Sprache aufrufbar. Woran liegt das. Was kann ich machen, dass das SQL Server Managment Studio in deutscher Sprache bedienbar ist?

  12. Save Results to CSV w/ Column Headers

    In Management Studio, you can run a SQL statement and then save the results to a CSV. Unfortunately it does not include the column headers when you do that.

    Can you please add the ability to save the results with their column headers?

  17. SSMS->F1 Context Help->FOR XML

    In SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) 18.6 (and 17.x), when I highlight "FOR XML" and tap F1, my browser opens to the "CREATE XML INDEX (Transact-SQL)" page. I'm pretty sure most users would prefer to be taken to the "FOR XML (SQL Server)" page (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/xml/for-xml-sql-server).

  20. SSMS 18 closes immediately

    I had to uninstall/reinstall version 18 and it still won't (stay) open. About 20 seconds after I open it, it immediately closes; not even getting to the login window.
    Please advise.
