    Hi.

    Try: http://www.toadsoft.com

    It's the freeware version of TOAD. It's not got all the features but it's good enough.

    Cheers

    Thanx a lot.

    I downloaded and i could not connect with DB.

    The following error shows.

    Error while trying to retrieve text for error ORA-12154

    Details:
    Building Oracle HOMES List
    HOME Name OraHome81 added to list.
    HOME Name oem added to list.
    Found multiple homes, searching each HOMEx for valid PATH
    searching in SOFTWARE\ORACLE\HOME1
    Oracle_Home found in SOFTWARE\ORACLE\HOME1 IS in system path!
    searching in SOFTWARE\ORACLE\HOME0
    Using: C:\oem\bin\ORA804.DLL

    What could be the problem.

    Hi.

    Like most non-java Oracle tools it relies on the Oracel client installation on your machine to make conenctions. Once you have a valid Oracle client loaded it should be fine.

    Cheers

    I've been using PL/SQL Developer for 4 years - it is a grrreat tool and is way, way, way less expensive than Toad.

    The debugger is fantastic! Step through code one line at a time, jump over statements, show the values of variables, suspend the run and restart, etc....

    Easy, easy, easy use of Profiler and Explain plan....

    I am beginning to get inclined towards TOAD, I've used pl/sql developer(still do) but am always tempted to open the TOAD. Guess I like the "croak"...

    Both these tools are excellent tools for developers...

    Less expensive than free? A community download of TOAD is available for free from:

    http://www.toadsoft.com

    You will need to redownload it every 90 days.

    This is not a crack or dodgy copy, it is an official release and provided less than 5 people in your company use it there are no license issues.

    The free version does not have a full PL/SQL debugger, but it will allow you to do most things the full product can do.

    Cheers

    Yes... if you download PL/SQL Developer they send you a check for $100! Just joking (I couldn't resist).

    Tim, your website has saved my butt 50 times - THANKS!
