Messages Section keeps appearing after every query

Every time I run a query the Messages>Errors section appears. There isn’t any data/messages in it. If I right-click it Messages has a check-box next to it. I uncheck it…run another query and it shows back up again. I’d rather have the space for my SQL query results. How do I get it to go away/or only show when there is an error (which I think was previous behavior)? It seems to have just started recently but I haven’t done any changes recently that I can think of anyway. Toad version is 12.8.0.49 and I’m on Windows 10.

In the Messages panel the list box that would contain any messages may have a blank message there. This is not expected, but it may be the case. If you click at the top of that list box does a selection occur as if the box contains a row of data even if it has no text? The messages panel should remain hidden if you close it unless there are messages so I’m guessing that a blank message exists. Does this happen with all queries on all databases? You could spool SQL to screen (Database menu| Spool SQL|Spool SQL to Screen) and run your query. Does anything show in the spool log indicating an error with your SQL or any other SQL that Toad is running?

Hi Michael,

Yes! It does act like a selection occurs!
Yes…it does seem to be happening with every query. The ones I’ve been working on today has been across 2 different databases and still appears.

No error…gives my session, timestamp and then repeats the query.

Thanks,
