[TOADSQL] Re: RE: History-F8

Hi falujar,

I’ve posted this query, and the whole thread to the Toad list rather
than the toadsql list. More developers hang out there than here I
suspect. If you can’t see the savedsql file, I’m at a loss to advise I’m
afraid.

Can you take a copy of your colleague’s file and paste it into the
appropriate location on your Windows 7 PC. When you restart Toad, you
should then see your colleague’s history and saved sql (I hope!).

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]

Morning Norm
I see History, personal and named tabs but they are empty.
I’m using windows 7 and toad for oracle 10.6.0.42. I
couldn’t find savedsql.dat file.
My workmate is using the same O.S and toad version and she
can see sql history at the left. What else can I check?
Thank you so much

Afternoon falujar, >> I’m a new toad for oracle user. I read
in help section that >> I can use F8 or ALT+up to scroll
through history sql >> commands. When I press that key,
history space is empty. >> Does anyone know how to activate
“history option” >> Thank you so much for your help When you
press F8, there are three tabs on the window that appears,
History, Personal, Named. Can you see anything on any of the
tabs? The history is kept in a file named: C:\Documents and
Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for
Oracle\User Files\SavedSQL.dat and that file should not be
read only. In addition, your user should be able to write to
it. (Don’t try editing it in Notepad - it’s a binary file as
well as some text!). If you are running Vista or above, and
an older version of Toad (9.x or lower) then you may be
hitting a problem whereby Vista (and above) flatly refuses
to allow you to put files in folders below “Program Files”.
