SQL Snippets

For frequent repetitive usage of code fragments, SQL snippets feature can be used. The application shows available code templates in the dropdown prompt list, and any of them can be inserted into the code you are typing on pressing Tab. In Snippets Manager, predefined templates can be modified and new ones can be added.
