1) "Are you really asking how to copy and paste a string?"
2) a SQL script is platform independant (but for file names)

Hi Michel,

Thanks for the reply,

please guide me on the below issues.
Questions:
1) Just typing DBCA is not allowing me to create a new database.
2) How to edit the SQLPLUS window, as we do in windows - ed (then notepad will open).

Regards:
Muktha

1) Yes it does if you are in the OS dba group
2) This is meaningless

You have to use more words to explain what you are trying to do, no one is understanding you.

Regards
Michel

>>2) How to edit the SQLPLUS window, as we do in windows - ed (then notepad will open).
You need to define your editor.
No notepad in unix. All unix will have vi.
All can be configured for vim/emacs/pico.

Perhaps it actually is:
export EDITOR=vi #<- ksh/bash
EDITOR=vi; export EDITOR #<- sh

PS: To copy and paste a string in a unix window, it may depend on the terminal emulator you are using. Normally it would be to select the string using the cursor to copy and then right-click where you want to paste.
