I do love me some good-looking code. Sure, the syntax has to be there, and the code has to be correct and all that, but I’m old-school, and I think pretty code is easier to read. I’d love to have a "code beautifier" built right in to SQL Server Management Studio, but I suppose there’s other stuff in line before that work starts 🙂
James Wang, a long-time reader, has created a free online T-SQL Formatter. There’s a few others out there, but the one James wrote has a lot of options, so bop on over there and give it a try. Post a comment if you do and let us know how it works for you.
