Creating custom fields for tables in a Netezza Database is not persistant in the Object Explorer
Connecting to a Netezza database and using the column select tool to select a customized field called "Ordinal_Position" which represents a rowid or position column field for a table.
It successfully displays within the table, however the issue is that the custom field is not persistant when going to different tables or even clicking away from the original table and back again; the custom column disappears. There is no option in Toad to force a custom field to be persistent globally for a certain database.
WORKAROUND: None. The custom field has to be set every time.
STATUS: Waiting for a fix in a future release of Toad Data Point.
