datagrid separate window

Is there a way I can get the datagrid in a separate window the same way doing an F4 describe has a separate window?


No, this is not possible. You could create a view for your query and then view it in the describe window, but that would likely be more trouble than it’s worth.


I thought about doing that as well. sigh


You could send to excel if it’s not a lot of data and you don’t want to edit it…

I can think of a few workarounds:

  1. Press F2 or shift-F2 to maximize the grid to full screen, if you just need to see it temporarily.
  2. Use the script runner to execute your query there, because it launches in a separate window with its own datagrid.
  3. Open a new instance of Toad and maximize the grid there if you need to keep the data handy to compare with the main window.
