If you want to enter a multi-line DBM command, close each line with a slash. This tells the system that the command is not complete. If you choose Enter at the end of a line that closes with a slash, the command is not executed yet.
Only when you choose Enter without having entered a slash in the current line is the entire command transmitted to the Database Manager and executed.
You have called the Database Manager CLI in session mode or in script mode.
