Is there a limit to the # of active connections permitted when using the "Loop Connections" activity in Toad Data Point v3.6 automation scripts?

I have approximately 73 unique connections which I need to cycle through while executing queries and outputting data in excel.

The script I've created runs like a gem and executes flawlessly for ~440 iterations of the total ~730, but at the 440th iteration the script stops, and completes, without error.  The log just says "done" and processing stops.

Anyone know if there's a system limitation at play here?

Hi, I'm experiencing an abnormally high amount of error messages daily on our server machine running TDP 4.0.  It's stating that TDP has encountered an error and must close.  Interestingly enough though, the logs show that the job is complete and ran successfully, so I believe its happening at the end of the script during shutdown possibly.

Below is the message details that I copy to the clipboard before closing.  It seem to be the same one each time TDP shuts down for a task.  Has anyone else seen anything like this on their TDP 4.0?  It does keep TDP hung up on the task scheduler until I shut down the message and the scheduler thinks there's an error even know there isn't one.

I'd be happy to provide further information, just let me know what you may need.

Thanks!

I upgraded TDP to 4.0 yesterday and upgrade my automation scripts. I have several that export data to a tab in Excel files with existing pivot tables. When the scripts ran this morning, the resulting Excel files were corrupt and needed to be repaired. It appears as if Toad collapsed a bunch of rows in the pivot table causing the problem. I was able to fix this by selecting the entire worksheet with the pivot table and double clicking the rows to expand, then saving the repaired file and re-running the automation script. I will document this in better detail, but I just wanted to get something on the forum in case anyone else is having the same problem.
