how do you bring in a script into the toad editor from an external file.

How do you bring in a script into the toad editor from an external file. you can do this in oracle sql developer by using the @ sign or “start” cmd and full path and script name.

I’m new to TOAD so this may be an trivial question.

Thank you

You can use @ if you want to run it, but if you want to see/edit the contents, click the “open file” icon. Looks like a folder. 4th toolbar button.

Beside pevious advice…

From your question, I may assume that you are not too experienced.
So best way to retrieve file is to put in double qoutes (").

Example:

@“full_path_to_file\file_name”;
or
start “full_path_to_file\file_name”;

Hope this helps
