Logging SQL statements

As you work with a database in Sybase Central, the application automatically generates SQL statements depending on your actions. You can keep track of these statements in a separate pane, called Server Messages And Executed SQL, or save the information to a file.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

Context and remarks

The Server Messages And Executed SQL pane has a tab for each database and database server. The tab for database servers contains the same information as the database server messages window.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.
