Generate in list add-in for ssms

This Add-In was created to facilitate writing SQL queries where one has to specify a list of IDs in an IN list. The list of values on which you filter on might be coming from a SQL grid, or an Excel file; in either case it marks each of the values as strings, adds comma separators and the necessary parentheses. 

Confirmed working on SSMS 2008 R2, SSMS 2012 & SSMS 2014.
