A Visual Studio add-in that enhances development functionality in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) and SQL Server Data Tools (SSDTBI).


All of the features in BIDS Helper are documented under the Documentation tab.


To install BIDS Helper, download the installer from the Downloads tab.
For silent installs you can run the setup .exe file with a /S command line option.

If for some reason you cannot use the installer the latest release includes an xcopy deploy option.

Starting with BIDS Helper for SQL 2016 which is installed in Visual Studio 2015, install it from the Visual Studio Gallery.


BIDS Helper won the SQL Heroes 2008 contest with a perfect score. Thank you for voting for it!
