Silly Question but I cannot figure this out.

I have TOAD v7.3.0.0 and in the schema browser when I select the tables tab the tables are not sorted alphabetically. How can I get the tables sorted.

thanks

AFAIK, toad does sort automatically...
can you show the wrong "ordered" items?

click on the "Table" header in the schema browser.  Once to click ascending, once to click decending


or, you might have a filter/sort on it.  The little "sieve" icon, kind of looks like a V,  will bring up a filter/sort dialogue.  If you're forcing a sort through that, it will override the natural ascending/descending ordering

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There are no filters and I am confused as to the tables "header" versus the tables tab?

oh, the left window in my Toad has a "Name" column with a header button. on it.  I have an newer version though.  I forgot the older version didn't have those.
Right click, in that window.  Does 7.3 have the custom query option?  Maybe you got one of those.

if you can't figure out where it got the data sorted like that, remember you can always ask toad to spool the sql to screen and see what queries it's running.  Maybe it's sorting as part of the query instead of inside the gui itself.

I spooled the sql and there is no sort on the query, is there a way to change the query that displays the schema browser. (I would think it is embedded in the toad code.)

Open Options, there is an attribute controlling the default display order -- as best as I recall.

you should upgrade to the latest version - 9.6 currently. It definitely sorts the table list without you having to change any settings. Just download it from the quest website.

the upgrade is free for license holders and you will have access to a lot more features.

doughee, that worked. The reason it was not sorted according to toad was that the DB was version 10.3 and toad 7.3 does not work correctly with that version. So I upgraded and everything is fine. you get the points because what you suggested is what I ended up doing.

thanks
