The better a problem is described, the better the assistance tends to be.

In order to better assist with your issue at hand, please include the following information in your initial post: 

-          Product, Version, and relevant environment details.

-          Include a screenshot of the problem

-          Describe the problem fully. What result was expected?

-          Can the issue be created on demand or is it intermittent?

-          If the problem can be generated faithfully, what are the exact steps to recreate the problem?

-          Any other pertinent information (see below) 

Create Support Bundles

You can create a support bundle and send it to Dell Support or to the Toad Data Point community Web site (peer-to-peer support). The support bundle provides information (about your application and the database) that is used to help troubleshoot problems. 

Select Help | Support Bundle. It may take time for Toad to generate the support bundle depending on your system configuration.
The file name of the generated support bundle is ToadSupportBundleToad Data Point.zip.

 

Create Support Bundle for a SQL Query Issue

If your issue is a SQL query or cross-connection query issue, it is helpful if additional log files are included in the support bundle. These log files are automatically included if you generate a support bundle immediately after executing the query in either the Editor or Query Builder.

Use the following procedure to ensure that the SQL log files are generated and included in the support bundle. These additional log files (proxy.log located in the DataHubSupportBundle.zip and SQLAnalyze.log) are important to assist Support in troubleshooting the issue.

For issues related to SQL or cross-connection query optimization, use the following procedure as well. These logs are also helpful for optimization issues.

 

To create a support bundle for a SQL query or cross-connection query issue

In the Editor or Query Builder, reproduce the error or issue.

After reproducing the error, immediately select Help | Support Bundle to generate a support bundle.

Toad asks if you want to log the row count for each table used in the query. If you select Yes, Toad determines the size of each table used in the query. This adds additional time to the generation process, but also provides additional information about your issue.

When Toad is finished generating the support bundle, attach it.

Note: For best results, always send the entire support bundle.

I work for a consulting firm that performs data migrations for Fortune 100/500 companies and we utilize SQL and ETL tools to perform our duties.  The majority of our time is in SQL and we create a lot of views in our work to push down to the database and to create reports.  SQL Server Management studio has the most functionality that I have seen and gives the ability to edit or create views with a query builder.  Looks like this functionality is available for some databases, but not Netezza.  Our current clients staging database is Netezza and that function is greyed out if I copy the view sql into the standard SQL editor and choose Advanced->Send to Query Builder.  Do you plan to implement this? I am looking at this tool and whether we will purchase, but really need this functionality to perform our jobs.

Hi I run both Toad for SQL server and Toad for Data Point. Both have the same icon on the taskbar. It is a little confusing so if it's possible I want to make them different.

I tried but couldn't change the icon. Does anyone know how to?

thanks,

Ben
