SQL Scanner > Scan

To prepare a Job for scanning

Mark the Job on the SQL Scanner window by clicking the row to be scanned. The image\I_BlackCheckmark.gif black checkmark prefixes the File / Database Object column. Multiple Jobs can be marked.

To start scanning

Click image\B_Scan.gif.

During scanning, information is updated on the SQL Scanner window. The time required to scan a Job depends on the processor speed of your computer, the file size, the number of valid and invalid SQL statements identified, and the time it takes to retrieve the query plan for each SQL statement.

To abort the scan

Click image\B_AbortScan.gif.

Scan Source Code with Temp Tables

SQL Scanner > Scan Source Code with Temp Tables

During scanning, if the scanned SQL statement is used to create or modify a temp table these SQL statements are automatically executed if the Create Scanner Temp Table option in the Preferences is selected. The created Scanner Temp Tables are dropped after the Job finishes scanning.

For example:

Source Code

select EMP_ID,


into #a



select *

from #a

After scanning


select EMP_ID,


into #a



select *

from #2

The DDL for creating the temporary tables displays under Scanner Temp Table in the bottom pane. This includes the DDL found by the SQL Scanner or the DDL used to create the User-Defined Temp Table.

select EMP_ID,


into #a
