Finally! T-SQL Reference for SQL 2014 available for download!

    General discussion

  • With a mere delay of four month since the release, it is now possible to download the T-SQL Reference for SQL 2014 for your local copy of Books Online. Due to some reorganisations of the reference material on MSDN, the language reference was misisng from the initial download.

    To get the reference, you need to use Manage Help Settings, which you find the SQL 2014 program group. Select the option "Install content from online". Once all information has been loaded, scroll down to the SQL Server 2014 group and you will SQL Server Language Reference with an Add option, which you should select.

    Now, SQL 2014 uses Help Viewer 1.0, which is very poor, and versions 2.0 and 2.1 which ships with VS 2012/2013 is much more pleasant to use. Thanks to SQL Server MVP Simon Sabin, you can get the SQL 2014 into Help Viewer 2.x in this way. Go to
    save the file to a directory. Open a command prompt in that directory and run "HelpViewerRedirector download". Then in Help View, go to manage settings, and select install content from disk. Browse to the folder and select the files you want to see in Help Viewer 2.1.
