Missing button - Create Table - Load Cols From File

Hi new member here looking to solve a simple problem.

I am using TOAD for Oracle 12.11 on Windows 10 Pro x64.

When creating a table I usually have a button on the bottom of the Create Table window that allows me to load column names from another document e.g. Text File, Excel, etc. That button is no longer there. Where did it go and how do I get it back?


Oracle has added so many options to tables that we decided to make a simple/advanced mode for the Create Table window. “Simple” is basically just what was available in Oracle 7.3.

Check “Display Advanced Features” in the top right corner of the window, and the “Load Cols from File” button will return.

Thanks John, that definitely fixed it for me. Never noticed the Advanced Features checkbox before.
