Enhance the interface for Run SQL Script in IBM i ACS
I would like to see the Run SQL Script interface support "." dot prompting for columns with descriptions, types and length. For example when typing in a select statement the user would use an alias such as: "Select a.column from mytable a" Once the alias a is defined once you type the a and the . after it you would get a combo box drop down that shows a list of columns from the alias table a.
Would also request the ability to see the file layout of the table within a window of the view. Perhaps a highlight of the table in SQL and right click would show a window with all columns, descriptions, data type, length and scale.
This is very helpful for developers who may not be familiar with all tables or all columns within a database. It increases productivity by being more efficient than having to go back and look at either the source code of the table or looking at a DSPFFD output.
