this table has many columns and only 1 record. select * from table; generates an
unreadable list. how can i list the record as in two columns? (column name and its value)?
i looked at UNPIVOT, but could not get it to work.
SQL> select * from table UNPIVOTE INCLUDE NULLS;
select * from table UNPIVOTE INCLUDE NULLS * ERROR at
line 1: ORA-00933: SQL command not properly ended
From MySQL client, if started with flag '-G':
select * from table
For the same program there is flag '--auto-vertical-output'.
But it seems you are using Oracle; this is MySQL list.
In any case, you wrote both 'UNPIVOT' and 'UNPIVOTE'; I suspect the former is better.
