Oracle 7.3.3
PreCompiler: Pro Cobol

Does anyone remember how can I run this statement inside the ProCobol:

Alter session set sort_area_size=100000000;

I tried the following:
EXEC-SQL EXECUTE
  ALTER SESSION SET SORT_AREA_SIZE=100000000;
END EXEC


Iget the following compilation error:
UNDECLARE SQL IDENTIFIER "ALTER" at line...



Thanks

Have you tried "EXECUTE IMMEDIATE":

EXEC-SQL EXECUTE IMMEDIATE "ALTER SESSION SET SORT_AREA_SIZE=100000000";
END EXEC

I don't know pro-cobol, but execute immediate usually just passes whatever string you put in quotes straight to the engine.

Try,

EXEC SQL ALTER SESSION SET SORT_AREA_SIZE=100000000;
