Executing SQL statements (Interactive SQL)

You can execute multiple SQL statements from Interactive SQL as long as each statement ends with a command delimiter.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

The command delimiter is set with the command_delimiter option and is a semicolon (;) by default. An alternative to using the semicolon is to enter the separator go on a line by itself, at the beginning of the line.
