Why not use SQL Developer<>? It's from Oracle after all, completely free... pretty good tool over all. Won't run in restricted operation like the free Toad will (1 concurrent connection for example).

Here's the latest information for the Toad "Freeware"... Are your few business users more than 5?

The Toad for Oracle Freeware version may be used for a maximum of five (5) Seats within Customer's organization and expires each ninety (90) days after the date of its initial download ("Freeware Term"). Upon expiration of the Freeware Term, the same 5 Seats may be downloaded again by the same users for the Freeware Term. For more than five (5) users within an organization, Customer will need to purchase licenses of Commercial Toad for Oracle. This license does not entitle Customer to receive hard-copy documentation, technical support, telephone assistance, or enhancements or updates to the Freeware from Quest. The terms "Seat" and "Freeware" shall have the same meaning as those set forth in the Product Guide located at <>

I read that Toad 10.5 has a new freeware version.

I have a few business users (who can't really do SQLplus), runs adhoc data pulls/validation. Currently they connect to the db using MS Access/ODBC to view the data. Constantly they run into situations where their client session dies without disconnecting at the database. If they restart Access, until someone clears their database session, Access doesn't seem to respond.

I am wondering if there are free or low cost tools which is more stable.. Would Oracle Apex help in this scenario?

Thanks in advance
