    Hi Nathanael_Gaia

    Could you add a little more detail of what you are asking for?

    Are you asking for the ability in the ACS Run SQL Scripts interface to switch Database connections more quickly. i.e. the ability to quickly change the connection for an active interface from one IBM i instance to another? If yes, have you tried the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F10

    Best wishes, Brad.
