Database History

Top Previous Next

When opening a database, Database Tour registers it in the list of used databases, which can be accessed from Database | Registered Databases... menu. The program uses this list each time it opens a database.

Except database names, the list contains also connection parameters for the databases. The database connection parameters can be viewed or edited using the corresponding buttons.

Any database from this list can be easily reopened by using the corresponding button. Opened databases from this list are marked with a tick.

You can copy the database list, 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 a workspace file. By default, this is a dbtour.workspace file from the {Local AppData}\Vitaliy Levchenko\{Software Name}\{Software Version}\Settings folder. Using Import and Export buttons from the Registered Databases window, you can import or export the workspace from/to another file, respectively. The workspace file is saved in the following cases: before executing a query, before database closing, and before the program's closing. Please consider this information when working with multiple instances of the program. When the program is restarting, the list is loaded from the workspace file into the operating memory and used to open the previously opened databases.
