How to have all changes in history by default


#1

Hello,

I am using Toad 9.5 with DBA module.

Is there a way(a setting, a module or a version change) to automatically log into the history all changes that I do manually like alter a table, split partition, etc ?

Thank you.

Some suggestions:

  1. Save all the changes you do as scripts that you rewrite and execute?

  2. There is this option in Toad (Database / Spool SQL) where all the generated
    sql statements are written to a file. Filter that one on DDL commands.

  3. Make an “image” (Database Definition File) of you current database layout (
    using Database / Compare) as a starting point and it is possible to compare a
    later situation with this starting point. That can give you differences and
    generate scripts too.

Groetjes,
Wim

Thanks for reply, I’ll look deeper into your recommendations.

(I have worked previously on MySQl with SqlYog as desktop admin tool.)

I just want to use Toad in a “visual” way to:

  • add tables
  • alter tables, partitions on tables, etc
  • modify stored procedures, etc

Then I just want to find all my changes in a “history”(for current session),
translated into nice sql, so that I can create patches, etc.

With SqlYog on Mysql this was available by default, so I was wondering if it is possible to do the same for Toad.
