Subj:   SQL Assistant doesn't like pasting, as the other children do
 
From:   Frank C. Martinez IV

Hola, amigos Teradatales,

Well, well, I've got a question that I'm going to ask before I do any incident-submitting or other forms of whining (Ok, some of you will probably say, "He whines all the time!"). Anyway, I've always noticed that when I paste something weird in SQL Assistant (formerly known at the Query Man), it's pretty weird (like when I drop a ERwin model in it, instead of an SQL file for the same model, that's weird). However, that kind of stupidity, I don't expect anyone to code for.

But I've also notice lately that sometimes I just paste some unusual text in there, like some stuff out of Outlook or Excel, and soddeningly (yes, it's very wet) I can't change my query anymore. It gives me some message about "protected text" or something, and I can't cut it, I can't erase it, the blank paper button (as in clear the entire query) doesn't work anymore. Have I offended the Teradata client deities enough with all my sins that they have deemed to put this little, but irritating "feature" in? Is there a reason that text should be protected (like is it not duck season, but text season?). Does this happen to anybody else, or is there another version that hasn't been improved in this manner. Just what the heck is going on? The only way I've found to get rid of said, protected text is to shoot the Assistant (uh, close it down) and start up another one. And that puts blood all over my screen and... (ok, that way lies madness).

Anyway, it's an irritating but amusing problem.
