The biggest news is coming soon!

So not fair to tease like that! :wink:


:smiley: Got any guesses?

Uggg...with pre-dawn global meetings and not enough caffeine to make a lucid guess, I'll generically say "something Cloudy". :smiley:

In this beta selecting XMLTYPE column gives:
ORA-30757: cannot access type information

I don't get that error.

  • Which Oracle client version are you using?
  • Can you run the following, export to Insert statements, and email to me?
select x.schema.getClobval() 
from   dba_xml_schemas x;

If you need to return to 15.0's handling of XMLType, you can do this:

  1. Close Toad
  2. Edit Toad.ini and add this under [SETTINGS]: UseNativeXMLType=0
  3. Save Toad.ini and restart Toad.

If needed, follow this link for instructions on locating Toad.ini.

Regarding guesses, I'm also going with cloud config and back-up, or maybe dark mode?

Unrelated to TOAD, for a laugh go check the comments on the dark mode "bug" for mySQL Workbench, now eight years old and reading more like a NSFW political argument than a technical issue. (Personally I love a dark mode anywhere I can get it, though).

Edit: Shoulda known I'd be asked for it, here's the source. Or just one, there are multiple requests all marked duplicate. Also, only a couple of recent commenters get nsfw ugly, mostly it's polite but amusingly persistent along the lines of "are we there, yet?":

That's pretty funny.

Problem was with Client vers. Newer 18.5 works fine.
I sent e-mail with more info.
