Ah, I expect that Oracle did not emit the parsing section. You would, however, miss the parse command if you never had access to the trace file, and got your information from listening in to the network, starting few minutes too late...

Please don't ask how I ended up doing this :) Obviously it is not a normal debugging scenario and I was perfectly justified in refusing to look for the SQL. I was just very curious if it *could* be done...

BTW, Cary, Was there a redesign on Method-R homepage? I love the new banner with the quotes :)
