SQL Developer - Table tab

Posted on 2014-12-11
Last Modified: 2014-12-17
In using SQL Developer, one can select a table and the data will appear in the tab section (right pane, next to the query tab.  How then can one have multiple tabs open showing multiple tables.
Granted that one can select each table at a time, and the tables on the left pane are alphabetized, it is best to have all of the table needed in the tab section, avoiding having to go searching several times.

Open a table, then check the pin to make the table sticky. Doing that once should suffice for all tables.

Olemo, thanks, that was just to easy for you.  May i ask another?  
When the query is successful and the results displays the column heading, how can one search for a particular heading?

Column heading? You mean the column name? The column names are a result of your query. If you want to search for a heading, just scroll the result set to the left to 'locate' the column you want. Or do a search on your worksheet to find the name you need. I'm not sure I understand why you want to find a column heading.

Gerwin, it is true what you wrote, and i have done both.  My hope was that there would be a quick way of getting to the "column name" just like one can do a search on Excel to get to the column name quickly.  This is when my query generates many columns.  Obviously only can create a query that would only shown the column one is interested in, but this is beside the point.

Clear. As far as I know, there is no way in SQL developer to search for a column with a certain name.
