Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Not sure if meta is the right place to post this. While the following query works with Data Explorer:

Select 'silver'

this one

Select 'gold'

gives me an

Error: Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ''. Incorrect syntax near ''.

Can this be fixed?

Wow, a gold bug! – BalusC Jun 7 '10 at 19:33
@waffles: Actually, this is just broken for any literal that matches *go*. This must be because of the way the GO statement is implemented on the data explorer. – Jason Punyon Jun 7 '10 at 19:39

@waffles: Thanks, that should be sufficient. Would you like to add that link as an answer to my question? This would give me something to accept, and you some well-earned reputation for your excellent work on Data Explorer :) Am I supposed to edit my question and add the status-completed tag? – Peter Lang Jun 8 '10 at 11:48
@Peter, Jeff will take care of that, only admins can do it. – waffles Jun 8 '10 at 12:11

Ok this is much better handled now, see: Data Explorer bombs if you use the GO keyword
