There are a number of free T-SQL prettifiers out there, covering both code layout and syntax highlighting, but Format SQL is different in that it leverages the engine that powers SQL Prompt, the popular add-in that extends SQL Server Management Studio for SQL developers and DBAs.

Simply type or paste T-SQL into the top text area, and it formats your SQL on the fly in the lower text area.


This was developed by a small team at Red Gate during Down Tools Week, a quarterly occurrence, where everyone in the company is free to choose to work on anything they like, so long as it’s beneficial to Red Gate.

SQL Data Masker, SQL Index Manager and SQL Test are success stories borne out of previous Down Tools Weeks.

I know the Format SQL team is keen to get community feedback, especially if there are good ideas on how this technology could be put to good use elsewhere. You can provide your comments by clicking on Tell us about your experience on the web page itself.
