Any options you set in this dialog are set for the PUBLIC group. Changing the value of an option for the PUBLIC group sets the value of the option for all users who have not set their own value. An option value cannot be set for an individual user ID unless there is already a PUBLIC group setting for that option.
When you change options, some of the settings take effect immediately, while for others to take effect, you must restart the database.
The Database Options dialog has the following components:
Database Displays the name of the selected database.
Show Provides a list of option types. For example, if you choose Database Options, only database-related options appear in the Options list.
Options list Shows the option settings and default values based on the type of options selected in the Show list. Once you select an option, you can use the buttons at the side of the dialog.
New Displays the Create Public Option dialog. In this dialog, you can define new options and set their values.
Remove Now Removes the selected option from the list.
Set Temporary Now To change an option setting for the database temporarily, select an option from the Options list, type the desired setting in the Value field, then click Set Temporary Now.
Temporary values only last for the current Sybase Central session.
Set Permanent Now To change an option setting for the database permanently, select an option from the Options list, type the desired setting in the Value field, then click Set Permanent Now.
Permanent values last between sessions until they are explicitly changed again.
Value Select an option in the Options list and type the desired setting in the Value field. You can make the setting temporary or permanent by clicking Set Temporary Now and Set Permanent Now respectively.
