Can you send TDR files to other users?

I’ve created a TOAD report and I want users to be able to run it and update it themselves. But, when I send the TDR file to them TOAD doesn’t seem to know what to do with it. Are they portable the way I want to use them?

The users have access to the same db and tablespaces that I do so there is no permissions issues.

Yes, you can share them with one caveat. You need to export your connection and have them import it. (See the connection manager tool bar) They also need to have that connection be the current open connection. With this the report will run.

Basically the report does not serialize the connection info, the user needs to be connected to the correct database before he opens the tdr file.
