What do you call "Tools" menu? What's in there?

Try to right-click anywhere in the existing toolbar (File - Edit - Search ...); you'll see a menu which contains various toolbars (standard, connection bar, etc.). Is that what you are looking for?

Hello Littlefoot,

Thanks for the reply.
Actually I have just started learning how to automate tasks using Toad. I got the basic understanding from below link to start automating tasks. Understood that we need to navigate to 'Tools' and have to select 'Automation' button to start automation in Toad.
http://dev.toadfordataanalyst.com/webhelp/Content/Automation/Tutorials/Automation_Getting_Started.htm

That is the reason why I was looking for 'Tools' menu in menu bar.

Please let me know if you need more information.

Thank You

Are you sure that you have the correct product? Toad or Toad Data Point?

To make this absolutely crystal clear - the web-page you linked to contains instructions for using a product called Toad Data Point. It is a different product to Toad.
If you want to follow the instructions on that web-page you need to install Toad Data Point first.

Opps. I very sorry about messing up things.

Can you please guide me how to automate 'validating tables' using "Toad" with an example. In specify I want to execute a select statement and query results should be saved in a specific file automatically.

Thanks in advance.

Probably not - most of us don't use toad. You're better off asking in a toad specific forum.

I use TOAD, but I have no idea what "validating tables" is nor how to "automate" it. Could you describe what you meant by saying that?

TOAD, itself, can't do that (or - to be honest - I don't know how to do it). If "query" means "SELECT statement", then the result is displayed on the screen. After that, you have an option to "save" it; there are various formats (from a CSV file to Excel file). However, it is you who has to do it, manually.

On the other hand, if you use UTL_FILE in your PL/SQL code (so, this is not a simple, ordinary SELECT statement), you can save the result "automatically", but that's not about TOAD as the same code would do it in SQL*Plus as well.
