Trick to transform the SQL that we get from Linqpad so it runs in Tableau and SQL management studio.
void Main()
TextWriter tw = new StringWriter();
Log = tw;
Users.Where(e => ...).ToArray();
public static class MyExtensions
public static string TransformSql(this string input)
string[] lines = input.Split('\n').Select(e => e.Trim()).Where(e => !string.IsNullOrEmpty(e)).ToArray();
string sql = string.Join(Environment.NewLine, lines.Where(e => !e.StartsWith("--")).ToArray());
string[] comments = lines.Where(e => e.StartsWith("--")).ToArray();
foreach (string comment in comments)
var regex = new Regex(@"^-- (@p\d+): Input (?:\w+)[^/[]*\[(.*)]");
var match = regex.Match(comment);
if (match.Success)
string variable = match.Groups[1].Value;
string value = match.Groups[2].Value;
sql = sql.Replace(variable, double.TryParse(value, out _) ? value : $"'{value}'");
return sql;
