Online Documentation for SQL Manager for Oracle

First time started

This is how SQL Manager for Oracle looks when you start it for the first time. Use the Desktop panel to fulfill any of common tasks: Manage existing database(s), Edit local naming parameters using TNS Editor, and several tasks that do not require database registration, i.e. Execute SQL Script, accessing the reference system or using available Internet resources.


The main menu allows you to perform various Database operations, open To-Do List and activate/deactivate Database Explorer, SQL Assistant and various toolbars within the View menu, manage your databases using items of the Tools and Services menus, customize the application using the Options menu, manage SQL Manager Windows using Window List and other tools, access Registration information and product documentation, update the product to the latest version using the corresponding items available within the Help menu.


See the How to... chapter to view brief instructions on how to perform some operations on databases, database objects, etc.


To start working with your Oracle server, you should first register one or several databases using Register Database Wizard.


By default the corresponding btnRegisterDB Register Database button is available on the toolbar and within the Database menu.


When the database connection settings are specified, you can set connection to your database and proceed to Database navigation, Database Objects management, working with SQL queries and other tools of SQL Manager.
