Describe does not work correctly in Toad 10.6


After adding the following in Toad version 10.6: “If you describe (F4) an object without using the schema name and multiple objects with that name are found, a dialog now displays for you to choose the appropriate object. This only applies to the object types in DBA_OBJECTS.”

This does not seem to work. Moreover, it described the first object found, from other schema, even if the current connected schema contains that object.


* Connect as scott / tiger
* execute: create table EMPLOYEES (name varchar2(50));
* Put cursor on EMPLOYEES of the above statement and press F4. Toad attempts to describe HR.EMPLOYEE and NOT SCOTT.EMPLOYEES.
