sql_executenice

Use

You transfer an SQL statement to the database instance.

Unlike when you use the DBM command sql_execute , you want the reply to display one data record after another.

When you execute this command, it implicitly opens a session with the database instance and then ends the session once the command has been executed. This database session is opened in AUTOCOMMIT mode, in other words, each SQL statement that is specified is automatically completed with a COMMIT statement.

After you execute the SQL statement, the system returns an OK message or displays the first data record of the reply. To display all the other data records one by one, use the sql_fetchnice DBM command.

For more information about SQL statements, see the SQL Reference Manual and SQL Tutorial.
