After working with MSSQLServer2000 I am finding difficulties in using Oracle SQL*Plus interface.
I like the MSSQLServer2000 Query Analyzer very much especially bcoz it shows query results in rows/columns.

Is there any similar free tool available for Oracle 8i?
Thank You

Just to clarify, TOAD is licensed software that you would need to purchase, but as I understand there is an angreement in place where Toadsoft always have to provide a free version. This is the one you'd be looking for.

Depending on you requirements, any free database client may be sufficient. I tend to default to SquirrelSQL, it's written in Java and and makes JDBC connections to the database, so it's also handy for testing connections external to code.

I installed Toad and it got expired the very next day, very bad. Do i need to install it every day inorder to use it?

Tora seems to be ok but i think its valid for 30 days only.

I am yet to try Aqua Data Studio & SquirrelSQL.

Please suggest me a nice freeware, want to use all time during my development.

Thanks for all your comments.
