New Features and Enhancements

Toad for Oracle 13.3

Table Data

Copy Table Data

When copying table data to another table you can select a subset of source table columns from which to copy. Only data in the selected columns will be copied to the destination table. Copy Table Data is accessible from the Schema Browser Tables view right-click menu (Data | Copy to another schema).

Note: Copy Table Data is also accessible from the Automation Designer (Utilities | Automation Designer).

Import Table Data

Improved detection of field breaks when importing table data from fixed width text files (Database | Import | Import Table Data).

Note: Import Table Data is also accessible from the Automation Designer (Utilities | Automation Designer).

Automation Designer

Export Dataset Action

If the dataset is a SQL file containing multiple SELECT statements, Toad will generate one file per statement. If the destination is Excel File then Toad will generate a new sheet per statement.

Similarly, if the dataset is SQL text then multiple SELECT statements results in multiple files.

File / List Iterator Actions

Support for multiple variable values per line, separated by a delimiter of your choosing. Values are referenced within child actions using the fully qualified variable name which is the action name and the 1-based value index, e.g. %MyFileIterator.1%.

Schema Browser

Tables View, Partitioning Tab

Row Select option added to right-click menu. Row Select is enabled, by default.

Generate Schema Script

Generate Schema Script (Database | Export | Generate Schema Script) has added support for ANALYTIC VIEW, ATTRIBUTE DIMENSION, HIERARCHY, and INMEMORY JOIN GROUP object types.

Toad® Script Runner

The SYSASM, SYSKM, SYSDG, and SYSBACKUP administrative privileges are now supported.
