  • I don't understand, what do you mean by 'doubles up'?

  • See image below: sp_spaceused doubles up at line break.  If I copy and paste it to SSMS query editor, it is not double (and should not be).

  • I'm not seeing the same thing. The statement is one one line for me, no word wrapping, and sp_spaceused is not repeated. Also, your font is different from mine.

  • Richard,

    The idea occured to me that it is related to screen resolution. Nevertheless it happens as the image shows. My resolution is 1024x768.

  • I also didn't see any word wraping or repeatation of 'sp_speaceused'.

    Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you. Hope I have answered you correctly.

  • My font is the same as Hasham's. Notice it is not fixed width, so the single quotes are very difficult to read. My screen resolution is 1366x768. I'm thinking the font makes a difference, although I use Courier New all the time for code and have never seen a problem. But your fixed width font is not in the forum html, but rather from your browser (I think). The code insert button does not result in fixed width font.

  • I didn't get the problem either. Works fine for me.

  • It does not happen (does not wrap) at higher resolution. It happens at lower resolution (800x600) as well. IE9 Windows 7. This is  the html:

    <div style="color:Black;background-color:White;"><pre>
    <span style="color:Blue;">EXEC</span> AdventureWorks..sp_MSforeachtable <span style="color:#A31515;">&#39;EXEC sp_spaceused &#39;</span><span style="color:#A31515;">&#39;?&#39;</span><span style="color:#A31515;">&#39;;&#39;</span>

  • So then is this reported as a bug? It might not be devastating enough to fix, but I'd think it should at least be noted.
