Subprocedure for Oracle's SET DEFINE OFF command

I want to create a procedure in ASP.NET to run the "SET DEFINE OFF" command
in an Oracle database. I tried the following:

Public Shared Sub SetDefineOff()

Dim myconnection As New
OracleConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings ("connectionstring"))

Dim cmdsetdefineoff As New OracleCommand("SET DEFINE OFF", myconnection)

myconnection.Open()

cmdsetdefineoff.ExecuteNonQuery()

myconnection.Close()

End Sub
But I recieve the following error:

Server Error in '/lvbeporgtest' Application.

Hi Nathan,

I am no Oracle expert but I can tell you two things:

1. Your code is fine, you aren't doing anything wrong.
2. "SET DEFINE OFF" is not a SQL command, it is a SQL *Plus command. It
just won't work Oracle has no idea what you mean.

I would recommend that rather than making this a separate command he
include this line at the beginning of whatever stored procedure on
Oracle that he wants to run.

Sort of like in a SQL procedure where you start with SET ANSI OFF.

You might need to wrap the SET DEFINE OFF in a BEGIN/END block:
BEGIN SET DEFINE OFF; END;

I've not used Oracle for a couple of years so the syntax might not be correct.
