The Top Ten

1 ApexSQL Refactor

Great tool, really liked it

I tried different tools to format sql, but apex sql was the best tool that I discovered so far.

I've tried other formatters and none get it the way I want. ApexSQL does it right!

Looks like it only works with SQL server / MicroSoft products
