Is it possible to make SQLPlus autofit column display lengths?
Posted on 2009-03-28
I'm new to oracle and I would like to know if it's possible to set the following display options and if so how.
1) One record to one line (no line wrapping)
2) Have the display width of each column set to the length of the largest item in that column.
I have a column called description that can be 1000 characters long. There are 15 rows returned in my query and the longest description is 35 characters. Can I have the column display width set to 35? I know I can set this manually, but I don't want to do it for every query...
