How do I search for exactly my search phrase

I am searching for GA PICKING and only want that result returned. I am getting GA, PICKING, not just "GA PICKING"

    Hi @Fwebb

    Thank you for reaching out on the Redgate forums.

    Regarding your SQL Seach query - the best method is to enable the 'Match whole words only' when searching for multi-word phrases.

    However as you are finding, the comma (,) is ignored. My understanding behind this behavior is that it is connected to how the text is parsed using comma-separated values. So when the , is ignored GA, PICKING & GA PICKING are both going to hit as a match in your search results.

    If this is a major concern on your usage of SQL Search I may suggest posting a feature request on our UserVoice page. This page allows users of Redgate software to highlight features or functions that can enhance our software to be better usable.
