Yes, if I've got let s say 2 queries:

$Query1 = "SELECT ColWithLongNameAndMeaning1, 
ColWithLongerNameAndMeaning2 FROM ".$tblWhatEver.";";

And I write $Query2 = "SELECT CONCAT( Col

then it would be nice if auto completion would find both of the previous 
ColNames ( and what ever else begins with "Col".
This is the easiest way to find out ( without scrolling 500s of lines up 
) if I write the col or variable correct.

In Kate it is like this, but Kate does not support custom definitions of 
function setc. for auto completion. So I ' ve spent the whole night to 
customize the syntaxhighlighting ( colors ) and tags and now I do not 
now if - and when how to get this work in Geany :(
