You can also use the Connections window to define missing connections in a Toad document.

To define a missing connection

If the Connections window displays when opening a Toad document, the document contains connections that are not currently defined in your Connection/Navigation Manager.

  • To define a connection, either enter the connection credentials, select another connection, or define a new connection for the document.
