SQL SERVER – SET SHOWPLAN_TEXT – SET Statement


SET SHOWPLAN_TEXT : This set statement is used to get the detailed information about the transact SQL statement’s execution (execution plan) without executing it. If we set this statement to ON then the SQL Server returns only the statement execution plan of the T-SQL statements in the current session until it is turn OFF. But, when you need more execution plan details such as resource required, estimated memory, estimated rows and etc, we have to use SET SHOWPLAN_ALL.

Note: SHOWPLAN_TEXT statement cannot be used inside the stored procedure.

Usage

SET SHOWPLAN_TEXT ON

or

SET SHOWPLAN_TEXT OFF
