Show multiple result sets Select this option if you want Interactive SQL to display multiple result sets in the Results pane when you execute a procedure that returns multiple select statements. Each result set appears on a separate tab in the Results pane. By default, Interactive SQL does not display multiple result sets.
If you use the jConnect driver and select the Show Multiple Result Sets option, Interactive SQL must wait until the entire result set is retrieved before any rows appear in the Results pane. This can result in slower processing of large result sets.
Results Format These options let you specify which result set(s) are printed when a .SQL file is run. They have no effect when running in windowed mode and set on a per-machine basis. These options are set only for the current Interactive SQL unless you click the Make Permanent button.
Grids Displays the result set in a grid or a table. Useful for displaying results from select statements. You can edit this result set.
Text Displays result set in a text box. Useful for viewing output and mixing query results and messages, such as the output of system procedures. The result set is not editable.
The following options let you select when to commit changes to the database. You can also commit manually by entering an explicit commit command whenever appropriate.
This tab allows you to configure settings for the Query Editor.
The Query Editor tab of the Interactive SQL Options dialog has the following components:
Fully qualify table and column names Select this option if you want table and column names to be fully qualified with their owner names when constructing queries in the Query Editor.
Quote names Select this option if you want the names of identifiers to be enclosed in double quotes when constructing queries in the Query Editor.
