Try:
SET LIN 120 PAGES 49999
COL OWNER FOR a20
COL DIRECTORY_NAME FOR a32
COL DIRECTORY_PATH FOR a58 WRA
SELECT * FROM Dba_Directories;

Open in new window

The above advice works fine for this specific query (where the output isn't really that wide).

Sometimes you'll query views or tables with lots of columns that you just can't get to display  "neatly" on a screen.

If you want to get information out in a more legible format, you would need to use a third party tool.

You can use MS Excel to query a database and return the rows into the spreadsheet.
You could use SQL Developer (free, from Oracle Corp)
You could use PL/SQL Developer (paid, form Allround Automations)
WinSQL is also an option (I believe there is a free Lite version, or there used to be at least - but it's mainly a paid product).

Depending upon your needs, one of these options might work (although each requires some level of configuration on your client platform in order to make the connection to the database).
