Querying explain plan with "Autotrace or F6" button will not show plan detains in the SQL HotSpot panel.

Autotrace HotSpot shows empty under "OPERATION" pane.

1. Explicit AUTOTRACE is set to ON

2. Using "Explain Plan or F10" button will work and display the Query plan details.


Oracle database 10gR2 and later releases use the default value of CURSOR_SHARING=EXACT,

 Explicitly CURSOR_SHARING is set as 'FORCE'
