Hi all,
As we know semicolan is a query terminator when we run queries in batch. We also know that (Wink is optional to use.
Ex: select * from table1;select * from table2;

Now my question is , can we use any other operator instead of (Wink.
If yes then are there any settings to do so.

If no please provide some links that say no.

Its urgentSmile

Why do you want to use any other operator instead of ;?

The semicolon character is a statement terminator. It is a part of the ANSI SQL-92 standard.

Transact-SQL statement terminator.Although the semicolon is not required for most statements in this version of SQL Server, it will be required in a future version.

You've asked the same question 3 different times, 3 different ways and you've stated that it is urgent, but you have not told us what your problem is. Are you having problems not using statement terminators or with using the semicolon?
