Opening a Database Session


To be able to execute SQL statements in a database instance, you have to open a database session.



       1.      If you do not want to have a timeout for the database session you are opening, then select No Timeout.

       2.      Choose Session ® Connect.

       3.      Enter the name of the database computer and the database instance.

       4.      Enter the name and password for the database user.

The database system converts all letters to uppercase. If you want to use upper and lower case letters and/or special characters, place the user name or the password in double quotation marks.

See Concepts of the Database System, Conventions for User Names and Passwords

       5.      Choose OK.


The database system opens a database session.

If you want to open an additional database session in a new window, choose Session ® New SQL Studio.
