Aqua Data Studio has a default setting which prefers / and GO as statement separators for SQL statements. When working on your own with ADS, you have the option to either conform with this syntax requirement, or change the options in ADS to accept a semi-colon ( ; ) as a statement separator. For this class, we are using prewritten SQL files that use a semi-colon as a statement separator. Different statement separators have different pros and cons; the semi-colon is the standard statement separator for command line and GUI interfaces with many SQL languages, so we have opted for the semi-colon. In order for ADS to understand semi-colon separators, we must change some options inside the program.
Under General subcategory, check ‘;’ Statement separator. You may have to scroll down.
