Cannot select a word (hightlight) between single quotes in SQL Server SSMS 2012 when in Edit Mode (as in right click table in the Object Explorer | Edit TOP 200 Rows - then click the SQL button on the toolbar to enter your where clause) If you set a WHERE condition into your edit statement and surround it by single quotes (no Red Gate or third party tools availabe which may correct the problem), the selection will not go to the word but instead to the right single quote in the expression. As in
SELECT A, B, C From SomeTable WHERE A='Alpha'
The double click to the word "ALPHA" will highlight the second single quote.

Hello Crakdkorn. Thanks for the feedback. We triaged this issue and at this time do not plan to address this in a future version of SQL Server. -Walter A Jokiel, Program Manager, SQL Server (wajokiel@microsoft.com)
