Thread: SQL*plus 8.1.6 buggy?

    I find that when I do a select on tables in sql*plus some of the output widthwise is chopped off regardless of linesize setting. Is there a patch I can apply to my 8.1.6 home installation?

    Thanks

    Is it possible that those columns that are copped off are of type LONG? You must explicitely set the number of characters that gets displayed for LONGs in SQL*Plus with SET LONG settings, no matter of how you set your LINESIZE.

    SET LONG = 1000000 will alow you to display 10**6 characters of your LONG columns, for example. The default for LONG in SQL*Plus is 80 characters, I belive.

    Still bugs bunny

    Should have mentioned that truncation occurrs when using desc. Might upgrade my sql*plus to 8.1.7 or even downgrade to a version I know works!

    Thanks anyway
