USE (bSQL) | Blockpoint Docs

Changes the database context to the specified database.

bSQL Syntax Conventions.

Syntax

USE database_name; 

Arguments

database_name
Is the name of the database to which the user context is switched.

Remarks

When an MDB login connects to MDB, the login automatically connects to its default database and acquires the security context of a database user. If no database user has been created for the MDB login, the login fails. If no default database has been assigned to the login, its default database will be set to master.

USE is executed at both compile and execution time and takes effect immediately. Therefore, statements that appear in a batch after the USE statement are executed in the specified database.

Examples
