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 for IBM DB2 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.

 

 Create Support Bundle for a SQL Query Issue

 If your issue is a SQL 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.

 To create a support bundle for a SQL query issue

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

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

3. 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.

 4. When Toad is finished generating the support bundle attach log.

  

Note: For best results, always send the entire support bundle. This provides Support with the most information about your issue and aids the troubleshooting process.

*Note: Please refrain from including private data in your posts

Be as thorough as you can with the provided info. We will reply to you as quick as possible. We are glad to assist you

Is it possible to pass parameters to a procedure in an open editor and execute from there instead of manually entering the parameters?

For example :

@IN_PARTY_ID, INTEGER99999

@IN_ACTIVITY_TYPE_ID, INTEGER, 5;

@IN_PARTY_ACTIVITY_NUMBER, INTEGER, 19313

@IN_SWITCH, CHARACTER, 'NNNNYNNN'

@IN_TABLESPACE, VARCHAR, 'TS_SPACE_01

@OUT_RETURN_CODE, INTEGER 0

@OUT_RETURN_MESSAGE, VARCHAR '-'

CALL "PROC_99999"."DM_MY_PROC"(@IN_PARTY_ID, @IN_ACTIVITY_TYPE_ID, @IN_PARTY_ACTIVITY_NUMBER, @IN_PROC_LEVEL, @IN_SWITCH, @IN_TABLESPACE, @OUT_RETURN_CODE, @OUT_RETURN_MESSAGE);

COMMIT;

Thanks,

Good Afternoon,

I have started using the new beta version (6.5.0.9) of TOAD and have to say I can't wait for it to go live!  I really enjoy the save script to PDS member!   

I noticed one issue and I am not sure if its a set up issue or not.  When I started Toad for the first time it usually asks me to import my settings from an older version but never did this time so I am not sure I missed the setting to enable this feature or not.  I always set up TOAD to color my background based on the connection of the database I am using. This works great helping when I am working in different environments such as development, model and production. 

In version 6.3 the object explorer would so be colored based on connection, but now it seems to always stay white.  Is this a setting I need to change or was its it a built in feature?  I thought it was a feature.  There are a few settings I change out of the gate when I first start using Toad so I might have missed it.  

Thanks for your help! And keep up the great work.

Robert
