Export/Import Default Values


Is there a way to export Default Values from Settings -> Default Values?

Purpose - everyone in an organization should have the same default values for relationship naming, index naming, caption etc...

I know that it is possible to apply naming using macros, but I'd like to avoid this if possible and create naming aligned to corporate naming conventions from the start.

And if anyone would be interested in sharing their experience (or best practices) in enforcing database design standards, please do so!



Hi Ivan,

Default Values customizations are saved in a default user package called My Package. You can see the modifications in Expert Mode Menu | Customization | Package Explorer | My Package | Default Values Containers. Default Values are saved for each database platform and version separately.


To share your Default Values with other users, you simply need to copy the My Package package to the their Packages folder (check the path in Settings Menu | Options | Paths | Advanced - Path to Packages, e.g. C:\Users*username*\Documents\Toad Data Modeler\Standard Installation\Packages{DCB5CB9B-CF65-4350-86B5-285D246FC5AC}).



That’s it. Thanks.
