I have just basic question on SQL PLUS. Is there a way in SQL Plus to change the display when a query or view is run? It all runs together on result sets that return lots of information. Thanks.

You can set the page size using set pagesize <#>.  You can also change the column widths of the query using set column <name> a#.   Also extending the line might help as well. Try set linesize # for thar

there are lots of formatting commands in sql*plus.

you can adjust pagesize, linesize, etc.

Check here
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e16604/toc.htm

in particular chapter 6  on formatting and chapter 12 for the complete command reference

if you have a specific example I can help with that

Sqlplus is great but there are tools as well if you want to use a GUI version without having to set the parameters above. You can use the free tools like SQLDeveloper and SQLTools.
