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:

System Command
Workstation-attached systems OS command
Mainframe-attached systems TSO command
