How to generate insert statements for selected columns

Hi there,

I use Toad 10 full version.

I would like to know whether there is any way to create insert statements only for selected columns (Not for rows).

I tried to edit the dataset while exporting data as Insert Statements but it is not editable.

In earlier versions of Toad, we have the privilege to select the columns to create insert statements.

I guess the alternative way is to create a temporary table with selected columns and then create insert statements.

Please advice.

Thanks in Advance.

Select the rows you want in the grid.
Right-click->Export Dataset.
Choose "insert statements".
Check the box that says "Export only the selected rows".

Thanks for your reply.

I was looking for exporting data pertaining to specific columns not rows.

Any ideas?

If you’re on 10.6 – make sure you’re on the .1 update.

Then, manipulate your datagrid – remove the columns you don’t want
included using the column selector (upper left hand corner of grid), then do the
