Allow user to request more than 100 rows in Run SQL Scripts by default

Example: I am running a scan against the entire IFS for largest files. It takes 17-18 minutes or so to run. I can't ask for more than 100 results until after the 17-18 minutes. If I don't sit and watch it run, it closes the results before I can request the rest. I believe I can increase the timeout on the query but in my query I am limiting the results to 500. I would like a setting in ACS to increase the result set from 100 to in this case 500.

    As long as the idea is not delivered, as a workaround adding "fetch first nnn row only" might help.

    Still the first 100 rows are shown by default, but scrolling down is possible until you reach the "nnn" limit. If you still want more the situation as described returns.

    Thank you for submitting your Idea to enhance IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS). We understand the request and will consider it for a future update though no commitment is made nor implied. To prevent the results from being closed without having to watch, you can adjust the Run SQL Scripts timeout value at Edit-->Preferences, then select the Results tab and adjust the Minutes under the Activity section.
