Toad for Sybase Freeware limitations


#1

Hi All

I have downloaded Toad for Sybase freeware edition and on the download page it states that the differences between this edition and the commercial edition is that the freeware edition has limitations, but it does not state what those limitations are. Does anyone know?

Thanks

The big difference is that the freeware only supports ASE. The commercial edition supports ASE, IQ, and SQL Anywhere. Within the ASE support, the differences are at the option level. The commercial version provides a lot more options for things like:

  • Export (commercial offers export to Excel, HTML, Access, or create insert statements, etc)
  • Procedure debugger
  • Version Control support
  • Support for Join indexes
  • Support for text indexes
  • Job Scheduling support
  • Create, Check , Backup, and Restore database
  • Compare & Synch Data
  • Compare & Synch schemas
  • Group execute SQL
  • Schema Reports
  • Session Browser
  • SQL Optimization

Hope this helps. If you’d like to give all of the features a try, please download a full featured trial copy here: https://www.quest.com/common/registration.aspx?requestdefid=37455

Thank you for that, that makes sense and we can see that a few of those are disabled

Thanks for your help
