SQL*XL: Connect dialog: Database dropdown

Database dropdown (Connect dialog)


The database dropdown was removed from SQL*XL.

Select from the dropdown or enter a database alias.

The database names in the dropdown list are populated from the Connection History list and from the tnsnames.ora file if you specified it's location in the preferences file.

If you like to connect to a database that is not in the provided list you can just type it's name in if it is an Oracle database (provided that there exists an entry in your tnsnames.ora file). For other database types use the Advanced button to create a new ADO connection.
