The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Is it possible to turn off the auto-fill feature in Interactive SQL? It is more annoying than valuable.

This is controlled by deselecting the following option in the Options panel:

  • Tools -> Options...
  • Editor -> Text Completion
  • [X] Open automatically

As noted in the options, you can still use "CTRL+Space" to bring up the syntax suggestion window manually.

Maybe I need to update the software, but the Tools -> Options does not have this control. I have Tab Placement, Fast Launcher, Show Tips on startup, and Show welcome window on startup.

So what SA version are you using?

Ah - I believe you're currently in Sybase Central, not Interactive SQL.

In Sybase Central, while you're editing SQL (e.g. a stored procedure), you can go to "File" -> "Customize Editor...", which gives you the same "Editor" category with the same options as I listed above in Interactive SQL.

Thanks, Jeff. You are right.

I thought I was losing my MIND, I could not find ANY of that stuff you mention, anywhere, in the ISQL Tools Options!!!

Then I realized you are looking at the Sybase Central Tools Options... try launching ISQL separately.
