SET SERVEROUTPUT

SET SERVEROUTPUT

SET SERVEROUTPUT

(OP)
I am running a script in SQL PLUS - and a window prompts me with:

Usage: SET SERVEROUTPUT { ON | OFF } [SIZE n]
[ FOR[MAT] { WRA[PPED] | WOR[D_WRAPPED] | TRU[NCATED] } ]

Should I be entering in ON???

Not sure how to bypass this?

RE: SET SERVEROUTPUT

The SQL*Plus command that I recommend to allow DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE to write to your screen is:

CODE

set serveroutput on size 1000000 format wrap 

The command needs to occur prior to a PL/SQL block that uses the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE command.
