The Access team is adjusting our status for this request – we are planning to embed the Monaco Editor (support for SQL Editor improvements) into Access, to be released within the next semester (first half of 2021), which will provide capabilities such as syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, SQL comments, and more. We are excited to have this capability released by next year, and we appreciate the energy and enthusiasm on this feature request. We still have a long ways to go to improve our experience with SQL, so please stay tuned as we execute on this objective!

I would like to see this too. At a minimum "Find and Replace" should be easy to implement without breaking existing functionality. Syntax highlighting would be my next request, which should also not break existing functionality or backwards compatibility. I have wished for comments in the SQL editor but I'm not sure how you'd save and restore them and still be backwards compatible.
