Throughout Toad, information is presented in a grid format. Within grids, you can customize grid views, filter resultsets, print the grid contents, and other standard operations. If the data set is editable, Toad enables that to be done within the grid.
In most data grids you can:
Customize the data grid display:
View special data types:
You can anchor a column on the left side of the data grid (also referred to as locking, fixing, or freezing the column). This can make it easier to track information you must scroll through a large amount of content.
Note: Row numbers automatically display as fixed columns. With the exception of row numbers, fixed columns remain editable.
To anchor a column
Right-click a column and select Fix Column.
To remove the column anchor
Drag the column to the right of the bold fixed column divider bar.
You can hide columns from the data grid after running a query.
To select columns to display
Clear the checkbox by the column name.
Tip: To sort the column list alphabetically, right-click the column list and select Sort Alphabetically.
