Hi Experts,
How can I see the sql statement that Oracle forms automatically sends when the user is entering data. Is there any trigger or a built-in I can use?
If I can see those sql statements, it will help me find a problem where I believe Oracle is sending a malformed sql statement to the database.

Get someone (DBA) to trace at the database end.

Use a join on v$sql and v$session

for example:

select SQL_TEXT from v$sql where HASH_VALUE in ( select SQL_HASH_VALUE from v$session );

this will return the last query executed for each current session; you can add more predicate is you want to filter by a particular scema/username for example:

DESC V$SQL
DESC V$SESSION

U can also trace the queries by

select s.username,l.sql_text
from dba_users s, v$sql l
where s.user_id = l.parsing_user_id

this will give user name/sql query.. U can also add some more filters like owner/time..

I tried both of the sql but I get so many rows returned. Could I possibly limit the output to last few rows?

Also do you know if there is any way to see the outgoing sql from the Form before it goes to the server? Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

To reduce the number of rows simply add more 'filter' conditions: like a guess at the code:-

AND  UPPER(SQL_TEXT) LIKE '%FROM TABX%'


To monitor outgoing statements from your form to server is starting to get a bit 'networky' - please browse:

you might find information on monitoring your forms client connection.

Hi,
One more tool available like 'SQL Monitor' which gives SQL running by Form 6. I used this tool so many times and it is powerful tool to find out background queries which run through Oracle Forms.
