RUN

Syntax

R[UN]

Lists and executes the SQL command or PL/SQL block currently stored in the SQL buffer.

The buffer has no command history list and does not record SQL*Plus commands.

Usage

RUN causes the last line of the SQL buffer to become the current line.

The slash command (/) functions similarly to RUN, but does not list the command in the SQL buffer on your screen. The SQL buffer always contains the last SQL statement or PL/SQL block entered.

Examples

Assume the SQL buffer contains the following script:

SELECT DEPARTMENT_ID
FROM EMP_DETAILS_VIEW
WHERE SALARY>12000

To RUN the script, enter

RUN
  1  SELECT DEPARTMENT_ID
  2  FROM EMP_DETAILS_VIEW
  3 WHERE SALARY>12000

DEPARTMENT_ID
-------------
           90
           90
           90
           80
           80
           20

6 rows selected.
