SQL Documentation Tool 7.0

The SQL Documentation Tool is a complete documentation solution for Microsoft SQL Server databases. It automatically creates comprehensive technical documentation reports for databases, saving valuable developer time and money.

Reports are created in HTML [sample], Microsoft's HTML Help [sample], RTF [sample] and text [sample] formats. Color coded, syntax highlighted copies of the Transact SQL associated with stored procedures, functions and views are included with the reports. The compiled HTML Help reports includes an index and search facility.

Version 7.0 offers the following updates:

  • Changed the way stored procedure field lengths are reported. Lengths are now reported only for fields of type char, nchar, varchar, nvarchar and varbinary. nchar and nvarchar field lengths are reported in terms of the amount of characters that can be stored within them.

  • Stored procedure column types (e.g. input, output etc.) are now included in the report.

  • GUI buttons now disabled while data being extracted or project being documented.

  • It is now possible to specify an HTML report colour scheme.

  • Added tooltips to the Project options Window.

  • The project options now include the ability to include a user-specified HTML snippet within the HEAD element of the pages produced by the SQL Documentation Tool. This makes it possible to add a custom Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) to format the HTML report's output.
