This error is a result of a corrupted or invalid entry in the TNSNAMES.ORA file not recognized by TOAD.

An example would be the following TNSNAMES.ORA entries containing spaces on the left hand side of the "=" sign and spaces to the right of the "=" sign:

The first one should fail due to the spaces between each value (after the commas). The second one should succeed.

Remove any invalid entries in the TNSNAMES.ORA file. (ie: extra spaces on left hand side)

This issue is fixed in TOAD 8.5.
