Logging Sessions On and Creating a Default Database

When sessions are logged on, an initial default database is set. Normally, this is the defined default database of the user.

You can also use the CREATE PROFILE (see “CREATE PROFILE” on page 482) and MODIFY PROFILE (see “MODIFY PROFILE” on page 830) statements to modify the default database. This default database is used until the end of the session, or until a subsequent DATABASE statement is entered. You can include the DATABASE statement in the user startup string.
