Easy way to Add standard macros to a team


We have a team of 10 with access to Toad Data Modeller (all using it in differing capacities). I have create a set of standard macros that I need all the team member to use.

Is there an easy way to "install" these macros on their machines?

Hi Sandy,

I suppose you have your macro in package "My Package".

Create new package and move your macro to this new package. See this screenshot to how move macro to any package:


Then new package with your macro can be imported to other TDM.

How to install new package:

  • Run TDM and switch on expert mode (Main Menu > Settings > Options > General > Expert Mode checkbox)
  • In Main Menu should be appeared new menu item "Expert Mode".
  • Go to "Main Menu > Expert Mode > Customization > Import Custom Package" and find and import your new package.
  • After this restart TDM.

In fact this process only copy package to location defined in TDM. By Default it is “C:\Users\USERNAMEXY\Documents\Toad Data Modeler\Standard Installation\Packages{DCB5CB9B-CF65-4350-86B5-285D246FC5AC}”.

Now you can run TDM.

For uninstall simply delete this user package in Documents path.
