Automation Designer - Set Variable

Hi,

I am new the toad for oracle automation designer features. I am having problems in using ‘Set Variable’ control. I cannot use it at all. The drop down displayed in the ‘Set Variable Properties’ window is always blank. How do I use to store variables?

I have attached screenshot fot the reference.

Thanks

The best way to find this in Help is to use the Search tab and use quotes: “Set Variable”

Set Variable Action

Use this action to set the value of a user-defined variable. This action is helpful when you want to change a variable value just for the action, without changing the global definition.

Note: You cannot use his action to set Windows environment and internal Toad system variables. Also, only numbers and strings can be values. Neither formulas nor variables
are supported as variables.

To create a set variable action

  1. From the Automation Designer, select the Control tab.
  2. Open or create the Toad App where you want the action to reside.
  3. Click ‘Set Variable’ on the toolbar, and then click in the app.
  4. Double-click the new action and set properties as desired.
    Note: If you select Global in the Scope, Toad changes the default definition of the variable. If you select
    Local, Toad only changes the variable value for the action execution.

Do these steps work for you?

Hi Donna,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I followed the steps mentioned but still can’t use this control. As I mentioned earlier, I don’t see any option in the variable drop down of the set properties window (this windows appears when I follow your step). Its blank.

I am not able to access the variable box. Please refer the screenshot I attached in the original post.

The answer might be late but I found that you have to go to “Configure Toad Options”, choose “variables” and create a “User Variables”. Once the variable created, you can use it in the “Set Variable Action” in the “Automation Designer”. Hoping that this was helpfull
