Toad for Oracle Xpert crashing on Import Data


Currently we are doing a massive import of 2002-2010 fiscal year data from Lotus Notes to Oracle. We are using CSV files and importing them into Oracle. The Lotus Notes version was much more lenient on string lengths and with moving to Oracle we have implemented maximum string lengths on most of the fields. One of these is crashing Toad on import. Toad gets to the line and the Abort, Trim, Trim and don’t ask again dialog appears. If Trim or Trim and don’t ask again is chosen, the Toad software crashes. Since the data is confidential I created scripts to recreate the error.

Next create a text file with following item:

Now granted this is over 6k being inserted into a 4k space but it should be trimmed gracefully. To finish recreating the error right click on the newly created table RFS_Test and select Import Data. Click Next. Select the text document with the text above. Hit a few Next buttons and Automap just for good measure. Complete the process by clicking on some more Next buttons and finally Execute. You should receive the Data is too Large for Field error and click on either Trim or Trim and don’t ask again.

I would have posted the files but I don’t think I have enough permissions for that.

I did end up changing the scripts around for this to be handled; however, I think this is a bug in the software and should be addressed.



Thanks Dave I’ll check it out.


Just a short update, I updated to Toad Version and running OraClient10g version and the problem is still happening. Also I hadn’t updated my script from dev but the one line should have been:


instead of comment since that’s a reserved word.




Thanks, Dave, this will be fixed next beta.
