Single Quotes in Outlook to SQL. subtitle: how to go from curly to strait

leave a comment »

I’ve long wished that the single quotes in outlook and word would easily translate to SSMS. On my blog, in my emails, in word, on my bathroom wall, all over the place, you can find the single quote that doesn’t work in the query window. Copy and paste and replace the quotes with quotes. I’m not sure who had the bright idea to make single quotes fancy. Possibly someone with a little more time on their hands. They probably had a mustache.

Regardless, all my whining took a nose dive when I discovered that there is actually an option to not use those fancy curly single quotes.

WHAT?

Yes. Deep in the cavities of options you can find a way to keep outlook, word, and others from replacing the normal single quotes to fancy ones.
