I am using Toad Data Point 3.4, and recently upgraded to 3.5, but the behavior I describe below occurs in both versions…
I can create an automation script, run it, then save it. If I close it, and then click File–> Open, and open the Automation script that I just saved, it doesn’t pull anything up. Its as-if it disappeared. When I say it doesn’t pull anything up, I mean that the different items I had included in the Automation Script (Select to File, If… Conditions, Send Email, etc.), are simply no longer showing.
The weird thing is, if I browse through Windows Explorer and find the actual automation script file (the .tas file), right-click and select Edit, it will open in Notepad. And while viewing in Notepad, I DO see all of the details of my automation script there (the fields from my Select to File, the If… Conditions, etc.) So my point is, the data is in file, but it just won’t show up when I open the file in Toad. When I open the script in Toad, it basically looks like a blank Automation that you are starting from scratch.
Has anyone else experienced this, and hopefully know how to solve it? If not, all of the automations I create are essentially pointless because they are basically one-time-use only for me. Once I close them, they’re gone forever.
Thanks in advance.
