how can I make EditPlus be my default editor in Oracle SQL Plus? i.e. I type "edit" at the prompt and Edit Plus opens up instead of NOTEPAD!
Thanks

From the manual...
You can specify which editor will be invoked by defining the SQL*Plus _editor variable. This variable can be set in glogin.sql, login.sql, or entered during a SQL*Plus session.

For example, to set the default editor to vi, enter:

define_editor=vi

I do the following and it works fine. Are you fully qualifying?

define _editor="c:Program FilesWindows NTAccessorieswordpad.exe"

Works fine now. :)

Put the statement in the login.sql file and works like a charm!

Thanks Jon.
