    Option Description
    Query files

    The Open/Save Query functions point to this directory the first time they are used. Subsequent open/save operations point to the most recent directory used.

    The default path is C:\Users\<user name>\My Documents.

    Answer files

    The Open/Save Query functions point to this directory the first time they are used. Subsequent open/save/export operations point to the most recent directory used.

    The default path is C:\Users\<user name>\My Documents.

    Import and LOB files

    Import operations initially point to this directory for import files. This is also the default location for storage of any large objects that are retrieved.

    The default path is C:\Users\<user name>\My Documents.

    History File

    History information is loaded from the SQLHistory.mdb file stored in this directory.

    If you change this path to a directory that does not contain an SQLHistory.mdb file, Teradata SQL Assistant opens and converts any history file created by an earlier version of Teradata SQL Assistant. If a previous version is not found, a new, empty history database is created.

    The default path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Teradata\SQL Assistant.
