Run SQL Scripts formatter semicolon moves to commented line

When using the SQL formatter on a section ending with a semicolon and the last line before it is a comment, it moves the semicolon to the end of the comment. It did not do this in version prior to Version:

I normally place the semicolon alone after all other script coding. An option in the formatter settings would be nice as well.

Use Case:

Query of data from data base file using the Run Scripts of Access Client Solutions.

    IBM understands this request and will consider it for a future code update, though no commitment is made or implied.
