I would agree. For a free stand alone, SquirrelSQL is great.
Interesting. Looking at the website, it looks like some of the developers for it use Eclipse. Wonder why they have not ported it to a plug-in...

Thanks,
Scott Johnson

FWIW, I switched to SquirrelSQL because it supports XLSX export (both the Quantum and SQLExplorer plugins only support XLS with its 64K line limit).

Unfortunately it's a standalone product and not an Eclipse/RDi plugin, but the advantage outweighs the need to fire up yet another tool.

Scott,



Out of interest can Quantum (I take it you mean
http://quantum.sourceforge.net/) export result sets as SQL update/Insert statements?



By far the best databse tool I have used is http://www.dbvis.com/ <http://www.dbvis.com/> and it had this feature but only for PRO customers.



Dbeaver http://dbeaver.jkiss.org/ <http://dbeaver.jkiss.org/> does something similar, but its not as user friendly.



Regards



Aaron

Chris,

I can't remember if the Database Perspective was available back then or not. If it was, I must have tried it and decided it would not work.
I know about that max row setting.
The nice thing about Quantum it too has a setting like that, but it also has an icon to quickly request the rest of the rows. No need to go change a setting.
I have yet to find a SQL plug-in that has this feature. Or I missed it because it was not obvious. :)

At some point I will give the Database perspective another shot.
Quantum is just so quick and dirty. Kind of like I still use text files for my notes instead of Word or OneNote. :)

Thanks,
Scott Johnson

--Several years ago, I had the need to run SQL and export large datasets to Excel.
--I tried many plug-ins and none could handle the large datasets.
--I came across Quantum and it was able to handle the large datasets and export them to Excel.
--At some point I did try the Database Perspective and it could not handle the datasets either.

Scott, were you unable to use the Database Perspective because of the default "Max row count" of 600?

Preferences->Data Management-> SQL Development-> SQL Results View
Options.

The preferences page includes the max row count and max display row count options.
If you have Max Row Count set to a number other than Zero, then any statement you run may only run over that many rows.

I eventually found this preference after my update statements would only affect a subset of the data.
