1.SQL Coding Assistance:

features help you get instant information on the SQL code you are typing, prompts context-sensitive suggestions, object member lists, full JOIN clauses, expands INSERT, EXEC, and ALTER statements, wildcards, generates aliases, and much more. Automatic SQL formatting brings your code in line with common coding style standards. There is a great number of built-in SQL snippets that store and reuse repeated code fragments saving you a good deal of time. Quick Object Info displays a complete description of any identifier in your code. it contains below features.

  • Code completion — to create whole SQL statement in a few keystrokes.
  • SQL formatting — to follow common coding style (standard).
  • SQL snippets — to save time storing and reusing repeated code fragments.
  • Quick object information — to show hints with info on database objects.
  • Code navigation — quick jump by F12 to variable declaration, object editor, etc.

2.SQL Source Control:

allows you to manage database changes in source control when developing and deploying an application. You can quickly link an SQL database to one of the supported source control systems: Subversion (SVN), Team Foundation Server (including TFS Cloud), Git (including GitHub), Perforce (P4), Mercurial, SourceGear Vault. Commit local changes to a remote repository, update a local working copy with the latest changes from the source control, view change history, merge files, and resolve conflicts visually in a handy interface.

This Feature allows you

  • Link database the most popular source control systems
  • Source-control a working folder
  • Perform all source-controlling tasks visually in a handy interface
  • Track changes history
  • Resolve conflicts

Source Control

3.Index Manager:

lets you analyze the status of SQL indexes and fix the issues with index fragmentation. You can quickly gather index fragmentation statistics, detect databases that require maintenance, instantly rebuild and reorganize SQL indexes in a visual mode or generate an SQL script for future use.

Index Manager

4.Unit Test:

An intuitive and convenient tool for implementing automated unit testing. The tool is based on the open-source tSQLt framework, so SQL developers can benefit from writing unit tests in regular T-SQL. Unit Test rich functionality allows to develop stable and reliable code that can be properly regression tested at the unit level.

is a tSQLt-based tool that is designed for implementing automated unit testing so that you can develop stable and reliable SQL code that can be properly regression tested at the unit level.

Unit Test

5.Table Designer:

it is an user interface is similar to that used in SSMS. It has visual editors for columns, indexes, primary and foreign keys, check constraints, statistics, and table storage properties.Table is a key object in any database and is the most difficult one to configure. The elaborated SQL Table Designer allows to:

  • Quickly set table properties in the visual editors.
  • Edit a script that creates the table.
  • Rebuild tables when complex changes are introduced.
  • Preview changes before modification of an SQL database object.

Table Designer

6.Database Diagram:

helps you visualize a database. You can create one or more diagrams that illustrate some or all of the tables, columns, keys, and relationships of a specific particular database. dbForge Studio for SQL Server allows you to create as many database diagrams as you want.

Database Diagram feature provides:

  • Easy managing and scaling.
  • Containers for grouping objects.
  • Printing large diagrams.
  • Virtual connections.

8.Query Profiler:

It provides a graphical representation of the actual and estimated query execution plans. A graphical plan is a commonly used type of an execution plan. The graphical format of both the actual and estimated execution plans makes it easier to analyze them. The detailed data on the plans can be found in ToolTips and Property sheets. The tool allows you to compare different plans while doing some performance tuning.

9.Schema Compare:

this tool allows you to synchronize database schemas with complex object dependencies. The results of schema comparison are neatly presented in a preview window. In addition, dbForge Studio for SQL Server generates a Data Definition Language (DDL) script that can be used to synchronize the different schemas.

this tool will help you to:

  • Synchronize database schemas with complex object dependencies.
  • Detect development errors early.
  • Create schema snapshots to capture database structure.
  • Detect drift on production databases.
  • Create deployment scripts targeting different SQL Server editions.

Schema Compare

10.Data Compare:

An essential SQL Server tool when transferring data from one server to another. It allows you to:

  • Synchronize table data between servers.
  • Analyze data differences and create reports.
  • Compare databases with different structure.
  • Schedule regular data synchronization.
  • Compare table data in SQL Server backups.

Data Compare

11.Data Generator:

A powerful tool for generating large volumes of meaningful test data for SQL Server database tables. The tool includes a great choice of predefined generators with sensible configuration options, that allow emulating column-intelligent real-world data.

  • 200+ meaningful generators
  • 15+ Basic generators
  • User-defined generators
  • Command-line interface

Data Generator


A handy tool for documenting SQL Server databases. Documenter allows you to:

  • Obtain an overview of the database schema
  • Include self-documenting SQL objects

18.SQL Server Reporting:

SQL Report Builder with support of chart plotting converts your data into a good-looking report. This SQL management tool also allows you to build visual SQL data reports in 9 different formats. The command line interface helps you to schedule automatic report delivery.

Sql Server Reporting

19.Master-Detail Browser:

Used for simultaneous data view in related tables. It is also convenient for express data analysis and locating specific records and logical errors in the database. Visual diagram helps to set up communications in a few seconds and go directly to view.

Master-Detail Browser

20.Pivot Table:

Using this tool, you don’t need to go into SQL subtleties to group and summarize your data. Visual Pivot Table Designer, advanced filtering, visual data presentation in a graph make your data easier to read, understand, and analyze. Note: table designer does not generate pivot SQL queries that can be used outside of the program.
