I have a script (got it from someone else) given me the user / databasename in the sqlplus-prompt -
anyone interested). As we have about 5-6 databases and I log in as several users (in the testbase) I would'nt miss the script. And if someone can tell me how to start sql with running that sql and then not logout /exit I would appriciate it a lot.

But then again why not use toad (a free-ware program)
