Steps to reproduce this issue

  1. use table tools / SQL Export
  2. output a large schema to another server
    2.1. don't select Create database
    2.2. select "Same as on source server"
    2.3. be sure that the db doesn't exists on destination server
  3. start exporting

Current behavior

I get Unknown Database for each table for the source database.

Expected behavior

If Unknown Database error happens whole process should stop

Possible solution

Could be related to #285

Confirmed. I get the repeated error for each table:

Especially for error code 1049, Heidi now cancels processing in the export dialog.

I wonder whether it makes sense to cancel on all errors during the export. For example on error code 1044 ("access denied for user x to database y"), it makes little sense only to proceed with remaining tables, does it?

I agree better to cancel the operation on most errors, but may be not all. If possible, showing a popup to user, asking to continue (and a checkbox to continue on all errors in the current operation) would be the best solution.
Or we can choose "some" error to cancel and others continue.

Are you sure that you really want to stop it?
It might be commands later in the dump related to other database(s)...
