Option to "Remove DB Entries"


#1

Hi All,

On Toad 10 ; where is the option to delete a DB connection ?

For instance in Toad 9.7 we had Session >> New Connection >> Right Click on any
of the connections listed >> Remove Selected Entries .

The reason is ; using TOAD 10; I encounter Error : " DataType is not Supported "
as soon as I login to any of the Oracle 7 DB’s ( which use Oracle 8i Client ) ;
but I dont have this error if I use Toad 9.7
And as soon as I logout ( even though I dont update anything ) it prompts for a
commit / rollback every time.

This notification / error makes me paranoid at times :frowning:
( Is this normal ? )

So I’d rather use 9.7 to connect to pre 8i DB’s and the Toad 10 for the 9i and
above.

Thnx,
Sam.

select the entries you want to delete, and press the DEL key. Answer the
prompt and Robert is your mother’s brother!

DataType is not Supported " as soon as I login to any of
the Oracle 7 DB’s ( which use Oracle 8i Client ) ; but I

Are you certain that it is actually using the 8i client to connect to
the 7 databases?

Hi Norm,

The DEL key : Ahh, that was easy :slight_smile:

databases?
100%. And it happens for all the 6 DB’s which run on Oracle 7.3.x with Oracle 8i
clients.

Thanks as always Norm !
