Describe function


Why does the Describe function work in Toad for Oracle, but not in an editor in Toad for Data Analysts?


Describe is a SQLPlus command and the TDA editor does not support SQLPlus. Instead, if you place your cursor on a table name within your SQL statement and press F4 it will open an objects detail window at the bottom with all the column info, data tab, etc. This should give you what you need.
