Database History

Top Previous Next

After opening a database, Database Tour registers it in the list of the last used databases, which can be accessed from Database | Database History... menu. Except database names, the list contains also some connection parameters for the databases. The program uses this list each time it opens a database.

Any database from this list can be easily reopened by using the corresponding button or by double-clicking the appropriate record in the history. Opened databases from this list are marked with a tick.

You can copy database history, delete records, clear stored database passwords and add new records by opening new databases using the corresponding dialog.

The list of the registered databases (along with their connection parameters and SQL windows) is saved to file dbtour.dat of the {Local AppData}\Vitaliy Levchenko\Database Tour\{DBT Version}\Settings folder. This saving is done in the following cases: before executing a query, before database closing, and before the program's losing. Please consider this information when working with multiple instances of the program. When the program is restarting, the list is loaded from dbtour.dat into operating memory and used to open the previously opened databases.
