Getting "Set echo off" in SQL output script from SQLTalk

Getting "Set echo off" in SQL output script from SQLTalk

Ok, this one has me a bit confused, I have a very basic script that I run from the SQLTALK BAT mode to export X number of records to a text file ( stored by the system date) my file, I have the normal stuff like - SET HEADING OFF, SET ECHO OFF....When the script executes, the output file has "SET ECHO OFF" In it. Any ideas why this might be happening?

One more thing, how do you write out "field1","field2" - similar to a comma delimited file. I can do this fine in Oracle or SQL Server but SQLBase and SQLTALK - has me by the throat...

Thanks and appreciate any feedback..

RE: Getting "Set echo off" in SQL output script from SQLTalk

okay...only a solution to your second problem

try it like in this simple example:

FIELD1 ||';'|| FIELD2 ||';'|| FIELD3

now you get your result set separated by ';'
I hope this will solve your problem

RE: Getting "Set echo off" in SQL output script from SQLTalk

hi jimgrid,

for Your problem I don't have a solution but I would have an other question: How should be the Call to the SQLTalk in the bat-File ? I could not find this call in any documentation.
