This is going to be a very vague post, and I know you will probably ask me a lot of questions, I will do my best to answer. I have not posted this before because I could not find no rhyme nor reason, but basically what happens is 7.0.1 “takes a nap”. It just stops working, I do not know why, I usually have to open 6.7 to continue. It will eventually return (I do not know how long it takes because I have moved to 6.7). Sometimes it occurs when I am executing a query and sometimes it happens when I am writing a query. At first I thought maybe it was my windows 7 pc, but i Have since had an entirely new window 7 pc and it still occurs. My odbc connects are sporadic at best due to business objects designer and old oracle forms 6.0… But navigator does not use either of these connections. It has happened connecting to a oracle 11 database as well as an oracle 8i database.
Again, sorry about the vague.
