Thank you for this powerful add-in Erik. Many kudos for saving the day. Without this tool many of us would have just skipped SQL Server Compact and forced to use SQL Server Express.

It has been with disappointment that we've had to watch as Microsoft over the years has slowly and step-by-step dismantled support for SQLCE in Visual Studio (and SSMS/E as well). Their excellent small-footprint, low-overhead, file-based database has lost their attention; it's gone the way of the venerable FoxPro.

Enter ErikEJ and his suite of tools. He has saved the day. We can confidently continue with our SQLCE-based projects.

It's got a few minor quirks here and there; it's not quite to the level of a commercial product, but then... it's not a commercial product.

Erik is very attentive to any topic surrounding SQLCE. He can be readily found frequenting any of the many SQLCE discussion forums. He's always available for support questions, is very helpful and he replies quickly.

Most projects of this nature require us to choose between support, documentation and quality. With SQL Server Compact/SQLite Toolbox we can have all three.

Thanks Erik, keep up the good work.

I have downloaded and used SQL Server Compact/SQLite add-in for Visual Studio. The tool picks up where our buddies in Redmond (Microsoft) left off. I found his tool to be very intuitivewith a dash of ingenuity. An example would be importing data from a Comma Seperated Value (csv). Initially, I had one column to import the data. The tool is intuitive where the selection is available by right clicking the table. The ingenuity is where the csv will have to be modified to be used by the tool. Here is an example:

My file contains
A,1
B,1
C,1
d,0

The table definition contain fields

(pk) TableID (indentity(1,1) not null
letter (varchar(25) not null
IsCapital (bit not null)

By modifying the file by placing the field names as a first row, helps with the import.

letter,IsCaptital
A,1
B,1
C,1
d,0


Great Job Erik. As we say in Ohio,USA "U are da Man." Translated "You did a wonderful job in developing this tool. Much kudos goes out."

Very glad that there are people in the world that makes it easier for others ( like me ) to do software development. And they do it for free.
You Erik is one of them, thank you very much for a super product and quick feedback.

This tool is a must-have, and I use it daily for project work. It's installed on all Windows dev machines. It's incredibly sad that MS won't support CE in their SQL Management Studio, so thank goodness for Erik's efforts in getting us the next best thing. Microsoft should be sending him checks for doing their work for them.

Also want to personally thank Erik for being responsive on Twitter and quickly posting a build with a bug fix that I needed (for long text fields & row height). I was blown away by the response time, thank you so much.

The SQL Server Compact/SQLite Toolbox is a tool EVERY Windows Developer should
have installed.

I made the experience that even if the download count is > 300K,
that many devs still don't know how to leverage the real
power (or potential) of the tool.

Maybe more tutorials (real world scenarios would help). Or just tweeting more
about blog-posts.

Thanks again Eric, great tool!

Great work! Needed to quickly create documentation for a database and the toolbox provided very nice autogenerated images and HTML. Thanks for the effort!

Works as expected with no surprises.

I have been using the code generation for LINQ.
Compared to older DB techniques, automatic generated IDs are just there, no need to request it explicitly.

The tool is now the only one I use.

This tool is really nice. I just watched the Channel 9 video again and noticed the support for Windows Phone data models.

I am really interested in developing my own plugin to generate code for my company's SOA design pattern.

I recently took over a contract using SQL ce to replicate large data from SQL server. This add in and the bulk copy add in were real life savers. I was able to script around transferring {a million rows plus} data back and forth between the two. Excellent product and really easy to use. Thanks ErikEJ

Excellent tool. Simplifies tasks that would take a LOT of time using other methods. Wish I has it years ago. Would have saved me countless hours of time.

I have found your posts and tools useful in getting my MSTest unit tests to use SQL Server CE, successfully.
Thank you!
