Automation file gets corrupted on its own


#1

I am using version 4.3 Base Edition of Toad Data Point and trying to create automation in it. I have used different versions of Toad Data point in the past and never had this issue before. I can create small automations here on this version but when it comes to creating complex automation, the automation file gets corrupted and can no longer open it in the toad. I open the .tas file in the notepad to see the issue and found that there is unexpected end to the XML file - The XML file is partial. Is this an issue with this particular version? or there is a setting that needs to be updated?


#2

I have identified this issue followed by the error message - FilePath\filename.tas has been modified on disk. Do you want to reload the file?

After this message this automation file is no longer been recognized by Toad Data Point and when I open it in XML it is truncated.


#3

Can you provide more information so that we can reproduce? What is your step? What activities are you using in your created automation?


#4

The steps for automation are -

Creating 3 variables for Date > Copy the required file to the right location> Import Wizard - data from the excel file to Database> Execute Script (Data update into the table)> Another Execute Script > Export Wizard - From database into the text file with delimited ‘|’ format and Encoding


#5

I cannot reproduce the issue. Can you provide the screenshot of each activity? We want to know the detail setting.


#6

Or better yet, post sample automation script

This is what .tas file ends like when I opened XML into word -

<ta0:VariableIfElseBranchActivity x:Name=“If_Condition_2” Condition="#RES# = 1">
<ta0:LogActivity Message=“NO RES” Description=“Add a message to the script execution Log” OnError=“stopOnError” x:Name=“Log_1” />
</ta0:VariableIfElseBranchActivity>
</ta0:VariableIfElseActivi

When I run automation and save it and then reopen it, can no longer open it in toad - The automation file will end incorrectly like above script.
