enhancement request: column information in view documentatio

Postby breninfl » Fri Dec 21, 2012 5:16 pm

We're using ERP's like remedy and maximo, and custom tables are defined by stuff like C0058273 for the table column names. Luckily, most of them also make a friendly name view that we use for query tools and such. However, when I use sqldocs to generate docs for these dbs, I don't have any of the column data types, lengths, etc. in the view definition, it only shows up in the obscured table definitions. I had expected this data to show up, as sql server management studio displays it with the views in the object browser, so it must not be that difficult to retrieve.

Where do I put in an enhancement request to get this added? Doing screen shots from SSMS isn't the documentation I want to turn over to the developers.

+1 It would be very handy to have column meta-data for views.
