The ability to enter an operating system command without logging off any database user sessions or ending a BTEQ session is helpful when submitting SQL interactively or developing and debugging scripts and macros. In these situations, for example, it might be helpful to verify the name of a file, or check the contents of a directory on the client system.
Use one of the following BTEQ commands:
|Workstation-attached systems||OS command|
|Mainframe-attached systems||TSO command|
