In Toad 126.96.36.199 (and earlier 12.5’s) I’ve noticed sometimes that when I control-D describe an object (letting Toad figure out the object type and leaving the object owner as “-- N/A or Unknown --”), it sometimes opens the Describe window, but puts . in the tab name and then gives me a dialog box saying “Table . does not exist”. And this is true – the table exists in a different schema. Note that this is different from when I type garbage in the control-D popup
window; if I do that, it immediately tells me “Object ASDFASDF not found” and doesn’t open the Describe window at all.
I tried spooling SQL while I did the control-D describe, but it didn’t seem to tell me much – it consisted only of three queries to USER_OBJECTS and USER_ALL_TABLES. (And yes, I have “check for DBA views” checked, and I have access to them.) It’s like
it was referring to some cached information, erroneously.
Any idea what’s causing this? Below is the spooled SQL. NESCHR is my schema, SALES_ORG_DIM is what I was trying to describe. According to DBA_OBJECTS there are six objects by that name: three private synonyms, a table, a package, and a package body, with
five different owners none of which are NESCHR.
