When developers working with SQL Server “Denali”, MS SQL Server 2008 R2 and MS SQL Server 2005 want to verify an SQL statement, they should do the next:

C# 8.0 and .NET Core 3.0 – Modern Cross-Platform Development: Build applications with C#, .NET Core, Entity Framework Core, ASP.NET Core, and ML.NET using Visual Studio Code, 4th Edition
ASP.NET Core 3 and Angular 9: Full stack web development with .NET Core 3.1 and Angular 9, 3rd Edition
C# in Depth, 4th Edition

– Right-click in the SQL Pane, and select Verify SQL Syntax from the shortcut menu.


1. SQL Verification can detect some, but not all SQL errors. If a query contains an error not detected during SQL verification, the database will detect the error when developers run the query.

2. Queries that contain parameters cannot be verified.
