tsql_variables option [compatibility]

Controls whether the @ sign can be used as a prefix for embedded SQL host variable names.

Allowed values

On, Off



On for Open Client and jConnect connections


When this option is set to On, you can use the @ sign instead of the colon as a prefix for host variable names in embedded SQL. This is implemented primarily for Transact-SQL compatibility.
