Creating Custom T-SQL Snippets for SSMS

Dave Mason follows up on yesterday’s post:

I have a number of scripts and queries I’ve written and curated over the years. They’re not organized that well, scattered across different folders. Some are named poorly or grouped in a questionable manner. There are a handful that I tend to use the most. And yet with that small number, I sometimes have difficulty quickly finding a particular script (if I can find it at all), or spending too many mouse clicks to find it. It dawned on me recently to make use of code snippets.

Code snippets may have been intended primarily to aid code writing, but they can assist with administrative tasks too. 

These can provide a considerable benefit for data platform specialists.
