T-SQL Tip: Highlight Code Between Any Two Parenthesis

Where has this been all my working life? If you frequently find your self scouring complex (and sometimes needlessly complex) T-SQL code, simply place the cursor on the inside or outside of a parenthesis, and perform a CTRL+SHIFT+]. Sql Server Management Studio will then highlight the code for that particular SELECT block. There is some complex T-SQL out there in the wild (future consultants beware!), this will save you loads of scrolling and searching time and help you wrangle in pesky blocks of extended code.

Crunch that code!
