Hi Jeff,
I downloaded the Beta about two weeks ago. It is a pretty nice advance as far as useablity is concerned.
I use automation files extensively, to record and save data before updating any record. As the TAS files are not backward compatible, any change that I make needs to be done on the previous version.

Is there any solution to that?

I forwarded your question to our automation expert and this is her reply:

We will never support backward compatibility. Only forward compatibility.

If a user needs to retrieve his old tas file he can go to app data dir\Automation\bak and there will be a copy of the old file before converting.

C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for DB2 6.x\Automation\bak


I’ll give it a try, as usual.

P.S. I used to get a mail when a new version was posted. I didn’t this time. Maybe it’s because you just updated the post and didn’t post another thread.


I don’t mean to be nit-picky, but the release notes for this version should be updated.
It says that the system requirements are:
.NET 4.5.1 .
The actual requirements are 4.7.1.


Thanks we will make a note of that and change it in our future release.

I have a suggestion to improve the compare feature of Toad. I use it mainly for Reference Tables across different schemas.
It would be great if there would be an option to have the result of a compare ( or as a stand alone option) create Merge into statements for every row in the table.
We had some of our experts write up such a script. I am willing to share them with you, if that would be any help.

The idea is that even if I need to update some reference table across many schemas, I would’nt have to do a compare on each, just run the update / insert scripts for X rows.

The new feature “Toad now allows users to specify their own custom connection string …” does not work for me.
Whenever I try to type in the properties for sslConnection and sslTrustStoreLocation, I get the error: “Connection string is not valid.”

What can I do?

Thanks in advance!


Please email me your connection string so we can take a look at it:
