How to change default automation relative file path setting in 3.1

Toad for Data Analysts 3.1 when it converts my 2.6 .tas files defaults to use relative file paths. I want it to stick with the file path I had in 2.6.

When you open your 2.6 script in TDA 3.1 make sure you have “Use relative path to find SQL file” property of the Settings activity unchecked (it is checked by default). Settings activity was called Script Settings in 2.6.

Thanks,

Igor.

I know it defaults to checked for that setting. I want to change the default setting. Otherwise I have to open each .tas file and manually change that default setting. I have a server with Toad on it that runs all the .tas jobs for my department. We just put 3.1 on the server and I did not want to go and edit each .tas file. Is there no way to change the default?

Sorry, I obviously misunderstood you.

Unfortunately, there is no simple way to address your request. Editing of every script in one way or another is needed for it. I submitted enhancement CR99141 to address your request in the future release.

Thanks,

Igor.
