path for the sqexplain.out path for the sqexplain.out retroman (Programmer) (OP) 7 Mar 02 03:39 Anybody know where the default path for the sqexplain.outwhen the SQL stmt is run from SQL Editor? RE: path for the sqexplain.out olded (Programmer) 7 Mar 02 10:44 Hi:From the Informix Guide to SQL, SET EXPLAIN:"If the client application and the database server are on the same machine, the sqexplain.out file is stored in your current directory.When the current database is on another machine, the sqexlain.out file is stored in your home directory on the remote host. If you do not have a home directory on the remote host, the progroam stores sqexplain.out in the directory from which the database server was started"EdSchaefer RE: path for the sqexplain.out retroman (Programmer) (OP) 10 Mar 02 19:50 HiThanks for the note. So in my case, i am in the second scenario. I have a home dir defined but when I try running SQL stmt with SET EXPALIN ON from SQL Editor on Win 98 machine. I don't see the result of the SET EXPLAIN being stored in the sqexplain.out? Did i missed out anything? RE: path for the sqexplain.out olded (Programmer) 11 Mar 02 11:03 retroman:Sorry I'm a unix guy. I have no experience with on Informix on the other side. The only obvious guidance I can give is do a global search for the sqexplain.out file.Regards,EdSchaefer RE: path for the sqexplain.out retroman (Programmer) (OP) 11 Mar 02 20:16 HiI did that and I believe sqexplain.out is in the /HOME dir. Just wonder why the result of SET EXPLAIN ON doesn't append into the file when it is running from SQL Editor. I tried in Unix, it worked. Could it be a bug in IUS 9.14 (on Irix 6.4) or SQL Editor 4.0 (on Win 98 client machine)?
