Ok, I entered a PL-SQL script in TOAD's Procedure Editor
with a Cursor and some DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(....)
commands.

I can compile this PL-SQL script (= no errors were shown).
But where does the output go?

I did not found an output pane/window where I can see the expected output.

Maybe I have to show/unhide this output window in Toad.

Or do I have to click another icon/menu after compilation to run this (only) compiled PL-SQL script ?

It is not a procedure but just a

DECLARE
...
BEGIN
...
END
construction

Sorry, this does not help.
The DBMS Output pane in Toad remains still empty after compilation.

Basic troubleshooting :

Run

BEGIN
DBMS_OUTPUT.ENABLE(1000000);
dbms_output.put_line('YO');
END;


If that produces some result in the output pane the problem is inside the procedure itself somewhere, if not it's a problem with Toad.

Don't write this anonymous PL/SQL block in Procedure Editor - write it in SQL Editor and view output on the "DBMS Output" tab (ver. 8.6).

If you insist on using a procedure editor, make this anonymous PL/SQL block a procedure, and then execute it from SQL Editor using "EXEC procedure_name".

Sometimes it really behaves strange - although it is a very simple PL/SQL block (just like the one ThomasG wrote), you won't get anything. In such a case, check that DBMS Output is enabled (turn red button to a green one) and, possibly, set "Frequency of polling" to a minumum value (2 sec) - otherwise, you'll have to wait (default) 5 seconds for anything to appear.

If it doesn't help either, open another Tab in SQL Editor (again, ver. 8.6) and simply change tabs (from tab1 to tab2 and back) and you should see the output.

Very simple, isn't it? I hope it will be helpful too.

About DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE ,,some times Behavior is unchecked i TOAD,, you can check it by clicking on View -> Toad Options -> Editor -> Excute/Compile and check poll for DBMS Output when detected

Are you sure, you ticked these 2 buttons. If not please do that then it will display the DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE results in the Results pane. See the Attachment
