The subsections below describe the various product features of Toad Edge® and different ways of user and object privilege management .


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 run 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.

Bind Variables

Toad Edge provides a way to reuse queries by using variables instead of specific values. These variables can be given value each time you performed a query.

To bind and use variables

  1. Open a new Worksheet and start writing your query. Use a single or double question mark ("?" or "??") to bind variables
  2. Run the query
  3. Bind Variables dialog appears. You can give each variable a value and then finish executing the query
