Toad Edge 1.1 - User Guide

Result Set

User Interface > Worksheet and Result Set > Result Set

When you execute a SELECT statement in Worksheet, the result is displayed in the Result Set. The rows and cell values here can be conveniently exported to multiple formats and you can even edit the cell values in-place.

NOTE: Currently, the Result Set is only displayed if you execute a SELECT statement alone and not as a part of a query.

To switch Result Set to editable mode

  • Select the Result is Editable option in the drop down menu in the bottom-left corner of the Result Set

NOTE: The SELECT statement must satisfy several conditions in order for the Result Set to be editable. Specifically, the statement must not contain:

  • Aggregation functions (count, max, sum...)
  • Set operators (join, union...)
  • Nested SELECT statements

Additionally, the Result Set is not editable when selecting from a view or when the selection does not include at least one identification key column (e.g. primary key).

Features > AutoCommit

By default, every DML (data manipulation language - INSERT, UPDATE, ALTER, DELETE...) transaction is committed immediately by the database. This is the default setting in Toad Edge known as AutoCommit. However, you can also disable AutoCommit for each connection and control the commits manually.

To enable/disable AutoCommit

  • Double-click the AutoCommit button in the bottom application bar whenever you work with Worksheet or Object Detail

  • You can also right-click a connection in the Connections View, select Properties and then (un)check the Enable AutoCommit option
  • The last option is to go to the Database menu and select Enable/Disable AutoCommit

When you disable AutoCommit, you will have to commit or rollback your transactions manually. Whenever you execute a DML statement in Worksheet or make any modification using Object Detail, the changes will be applied only in your session. They will not be applied in the database unless you commit them.

There are two buttons that can be used to manually control the process:

  • Commit Transaction - the changes you have made will be committed and applied in the database
  • Rollback Transaction - the changes you have made will be discarded and the database will not be modified

NOTE: These buttons are disabled when AutoCommit is enabled.
