Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

I want to display information about progress from a SQL script using the MESSAGE command. When I use DBISQLC.EXE the command

MESSAGE 'This is a client info' TYPE INFO TO CLIENT

will display the message in the statistics window.

But with Java-ISQL (DBISQL.EXE) I don't see any message.

To be more precise: it's on my main machine where the message doesn't show ( On my second PC (Vista 32 SP2) it works. So it might be some kind of configuration problem.

I posted the same question to the sqlanywhere.general forum and didn't get something solid as an answer. I will try opening a case (but it's no crucial problem, so an answer may take time too). In the meantime I use DBISQLC, which displays the message (but has some downsides).

So I would like to do something like "close this question". Me thinks, accepting my own answer as "the one and only" would at least take my question out of the unanswered list.

Just forgot, that I can't vote for my own answer. So this will stay open ...

In & dbisql I get the message in the Results window.

You don't by any chance have the Messages pane switched on (Options | Messages) and then have that minimized or hidden do you?

I have configured a separate message pane, but it shows only the execution time of the message command. The message text is nowhere to be seen. The result window is empty with '(no data)' as tab label

Still waiting for someone to come over with anything enlightening. Even if it were a technical explanation why the message can't get displayed.
