Sqlplus - saving environment options from session to session

Posted on 2004-10-20

I want to be able to set the linesize and set the wordwrap and then have the settings saved from session to session.

When I set the environment options, the setting reverts back after I close SQLPLUS and open a new SQLPLUS window.

How do I save my settings from session to session.  OR how do I open the SQLPLUS with my preferred options (command line options?).

Thanks.

Place these in either your login.sql or glogin.sql file.

They will be active each time you log in.  The only gotcha is that depending on your O/S, you may have to execute your login.sql file each time you connect as another user in the same sqlplus session.

Open an SQLPLUS session and type EDIT COMMANDS, click yes, enter your commands, close it, click yes, close your session, right click on your SQLPLUS icon, in Target you should see C:\oracle\ora92\bin\sqlplusw.exe ,add the following at the end <your_user_id>/<your_password>@<database> @commands.txt

Target should look like: C:\oracle\ora92\bin\sqlplus.exe <your_user_id>/<your_password>@<database> @commands.txt
Hope this helps!

exactly as you would enter it from the 'SQL>' prompt.  Place each entry on its own line.

i.e./

contents of login.sql
============================
set lines 130
set pages 100
...

in SQLPLUS when you type EDIT COMMANDS, and click YES, you can type the commands in notepad like this:
set wrap off
set linesize 130
Then, close notepad and click YES to save it. What you do is creating an .sql file in your bin directory.
