How to execute the query at cursor

User_PVPUC Member Posts: 3 Red Ribbon

New to SQL Developer when forced to leave TOAD. Trying to execute one query of several on the page without highlighting. All of the mentions I have found on Google are obviously from very old versions.

    F9 - Run Statement will run the statement under the cursor, or all highlighted statements. The large green arrow in the toolbar is also Run Statement. Ctrl-Enter also works.

    F5 - run worksheet will run the entire worksheet. The green arrow on a page in the toolbar is the equivalent.

    You need to have your statements terminated by semi-colons (or slashes for PL/SQL blocks) for it to work.

    This hasn't changed since the orignal pre release days (Project Raptor), so your old versions instructions from google should work.

    Thank you, Jim. It was the semi-colons that I had neglected to add. I got used to not having to add them while using TOAD.
