In TOAD with oracle database,

1. choose the schema browser
2. choose the table
3. choose data tab on the right pane
4. scroll down the data shows data in the table

Is there a way to tell total number of rows in the table without going to SQL editor and run a query

navigate to the last row (ctrl + end)...but this will take a lot of time & resources for big tables...

Click on the box in the top-left of the data grid and a pop-up menu will appear. Select Record count...  and it will count the noi of rows that would be rturned

It's the 'book' icon, left of the column headings - and you should right-click to get the context-sensitive popup menu

Of course, if it is the total number of rows in the table (i.e. no filter applied), then you could analyse the table (compute stats) then look at the NUM-ROWS value in the Stats/Size tab

Thanks. Right. I wanted to know the number of rows returned

As for the "analyze table ....",
I can do this on the SQL Editor also

Does TOAD generate any scripts to look at (simlar to DDL for create table) especially for DBMS_STATS

If you trun on SQL Monitor, you can see all the SQL that TOAD is issuing!

In v9.0, it is on the Database, Monitor menu. The menus were rearrange in v9, so it may be somwehere else in v8 etc.

My TOAD version is I suppose you meant oracle version, my oracle version v9.2

It seems like it that the SQL Monitor may be a special add on

No - I mean TOAD version.
You are on quite an old version - 8.6 has been around for a while
