Opena new file in same editor


#1

Is it possible to open a new file and overwrite the existing data in an open editor?

I am using v6.3

Thanks,

Paul

Not currently, but can you let us know your use case? Toad simply creates another Editor tab when opening up a script/file.
So the end-result is the same, except that you get the flexibility of keeping your other code in the other Editor tab in case you need it.

As Gary mentioned Toad will open up a new editor.

If you wanted to bring the contents of that new editor into your existing editor - you can easily CTRL+A and CTRL+C to copy all of its contents.

I too would be interested in why you are asking for this use case.

Our company recently disabled the Create and Replace for procedure command. I need to update about 400 stored procedures. I need to add a Drop and Create statement. I can do this with a code snippet.

I use the find and replace command twice and was hoping to keep the two find commands and change the replaced with value. But when I open a new fond and replace, the values are not kept.

Thanks,

Paul
