If you use this code:
SELECT 
	*<end selection>
FROM dbo.backupfile
WHERE 
	backup_set_id > 10<start selection>

And start selecing text from the bottom (as indicated) and type a TAB it will expand the * instead of indenting the selected rows as it should.[/img]

  • Many thanks for your post and apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    I have logged it as a bug in our internal tracking system whose tracking id is SP-2909.

    Workaround can be to select following way:

    Code:
    SELECT
    * <end selection> FROM dbo.backupfile
    WHERE
    backup_set_id > 10<start selection>

    i.e. by living a pace after the * as 'TAB' invokes the functionality Wild card expansion.

    Kindly let us know if you have any other issues or questions regarding the product,I'll like to help.

  • There are a number of workarounds, but I seem to end up doing it the "wrong" way more than the "right" way. What is weird is that sometimes it will indent once, but on the second TAB it expands the *.
