SQL errors are frustratingly common, especially when you’re staring down a massive block of code. Is there an unbalanced parenthesis somewhere, or perhaps a missing comma? How about spelling errors? Or, maybe you’re getting inaccurate results because of a missing JOIN condition. 🤷‍♀️

While knowing how to fix SQL code is a valuable skill, there’s also a free tool that will spot your errors instantly. 

Automatically find and fix SQL errors using artificial intelligence

Data Sidekick combines the power of AI with context from your data warehouse to take the grunt work out of common data tasks, including troubleshooting SQL errors.

Before Sidekick, what was it like to work with SQL?
When I first learned SQL, nothing was more frustrating than feeling ecstatic about FINALLY crafting the perfect complex query… only to be greeted with an annoying syntax error that I had to spend even more time trying to fix.

How has Sidekick changed the way you use SQL?
As someone who’s proficient with SQL, but not an expert by any means, the SQL Fixer recipe saves me tons of time (and mental energy).

Now, I don’t even have to worry about writing the perfect query. If something’s off with my SQL, Sidekick finds the source instantly and automatically. I’ve spent way too many hours trying to fix SQL, so it really does feel like magic.
