Hi, I have by mistake set the isql_log option permanently to a false file (set option isql_log=false_file.log). What is the way for rollbacking this option so that it will take its default value.

This is an IQ option, not available in SQL Anywhere.

Currently, you may have a file "false_file.log" somewhere that is gathering up all your SQL statements.

To turn that off, try setting it to the empty string...

doesn't this last statment (SET OPTION PUBLIC.ISQL_LOG = '';) means that no any transaction log is anymore used? What I want is to have the default option (having .log file with the same name as the database file and in the same path)

Please follow the link and read the Help page about isql_log. This option has absolutely nothing to do with the transaction log.

Thanks, I have mixed them.
