Select to File and Export Wizard: Corrected an issue that was preventing Toad from completely clearing the worksheet before exporting to an existing Excel file when “Clear worksheet data before exporting” was selected. In this case, blank formatted rows remained after row count was reduced in subsequent exports.

Select to File: When specifying the export file, you can now select to use a macro-enabled Excel file type (.xlsm).

Note: The Select to File activity does not execute macros. To execute macros, continue to use the Export Wizard activity.

N/A
Select to File: Corrected an issue that prevented successful generation of the file name date suffix in a script created in a previous version of Toad and run in batch mode. The date suffix format created in a previous version is now supported, as expected.

Apache Hive
HiveServer2: Improved user experience upon initial connection to a large Hive data source. Toad now maps only the current schema to reduce the delay when presenting objects in the Object Explorer, especially when multiple large databases are involved.
