Text completion tab

Interactive SQL provides a text completion option that can supply object names for you. You can configure text completion to fill in the name of any or all of the following object types: tables, views, columns, stored procedures, and system functions.

To use text completion:

  1. In Interactive SQL, type the first letter of a database object name in the SQL Statements pane.

  2. Press Ctrl+Space or Ctrl+Shift+Space.

    A window appears listing the names of database objects that begin with the letters you have typed so far.

    If you do not see the object name you want, press Tab to view a complete list of database objects. By default, all database objects appear in the list.

    The object name appears in the SQL Statements pane.

  3. Select the object name from the list and then press Enter.
