When you do get into formatting SQL code can I put in a plea for making it user configurable (and yes I know its more difficult) because many of us have different programming styles. eg I for one hate, loath, and detest the Borland style.

Hey Roy, what's a "Borland style"? I'm a VS guy so it's a curiosity thing on
my part.

The part of the style I particularly dislike is the hanging statement eg

if A < B then
DoSomething;

if A < B then
begin
DoSomething;
DoSomethingElse;
end
else
begin
DoThis;
DoThat;
end;

I much prefer the in line approach

if A < B then DoSomething;

for some unknown reason my eyes scan left to right and the need to wrap before the end of a statement jars.

If code-formatting does get added, it will most definitely be
user-configurable.
