Feel free to ask anything you want, but I’ll feel free to send you to Support or our Forums if it goes sideways.

Note: This page has turned out way more successful(?) than I would have ever imagined. Please keep these things in mind when asking questions.

  1. I am NOT support. Don’t expect me to log bugs for you, or give you official timelines on bug fixes, enhancements, or product releases.
  2. I AM NOT SUPPORT. Don’t open an SR with My Oracle Support AND leave a question here. Pick one and go with it, and when in doubt, go to My Oracle Support.
  3. I try to answer questions as quickly as possible. If you don’t get an answer, ask me for an update. I may have just forgotten or overlooked your request.



  1. They are also generally cautious with the standard along with
    the chance of damage with their clothes. Socially disadvantaged people should own business- Having a
    small company just isn’t enough. LIW was formerly employed in paints but these kinds of practices are actually eradicated due to harmful effect of lead poisoning.

  2. Quick question on advanced format, custom format: I’m used to using Toad and we’re switching to Oracle SQL Developer (18.3). For any query, Oracle SQL Query Analyzer code formatter puts spaces before and after any period with a field name and alias. For example, if I have a piece of code that says “where ipa.ipa_id = clm.ipa_id”, when I hit Ctrl-F7, it gives me “where ipa . id = clm . ipa_id”.

    I’ve done searches all morning as to how to remove these spaces before and after the period and can’t find any help on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Is there anyway to get the CTRL-Click, when used on a view, to tunnel to the table and show the data from there?
