Using the User_Views Data Dictionary View

Hi Folks,

   Whenever views are created the select statement through which a particular view is created is saved in the user_views 'TEXT' field and one can always refer it for checking out the code. I have created a particluar view and whenever I query the user_views and try to look at the SELECT statement in the TEXT column, its not displayed fully and is always truncated. I have even changed the line size and page size parameters of SQL*Plus, but it does not work. Am I missing some basic point here?

TIA

Hassan

The text column is a long field (at least in 0racle8 which is what I have in front of me) and sqlplus has its own parameter - LONG to tell it how much to display

try this
set linesize 132;
column text format a100 word_wrapped;
set long 4000;
select view_name, text from user_view;
