Toad Edge 2.1 - User Guide


When you execute a SELECT statement in Worksheet, the result is displayed in the Result. 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 is only displayed if you execute a SELECT statement alone and not as a part of a query.

To switch Result to editable mode

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

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

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

Additionally, the Result 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).

When you turn on AutoCommit for your connection, all SQL statements will form transactions on their own and will be committed immediately unless an error is returned.

To enable/disable AutoCommit in Worksheet/Object Detail

  • Double-click the AutoCommit button in the bottom application bar

To enable/disable AutoCommit in Connections

  • Right-click a connection in Connections and select Properties | Connection Details Enable AutoCommit
  • The last option is to go to 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.
