Request for feature - associating comments to a table

Postby jean-rator » Tue Oct 02, 2012 9:03 am

Hello,


it would be convenient to have the capability to write some comments to the way data are generated for each table.

in my case I'm using :
- classical SDG settings for the table ;
- a script after data generation to 'adjust' some tables ;
- another (external) script for BLOB data

It would be appreciated to get a report summarizing all that comments.

thanks in advance for replying.
regards.

When you say 'write some comments', what exactly do you mean? Are you after something being written to the ms_description extended property or similar, or would you just like a text report to be generated?

Hi,


Sorry for the poor explanation.

I'm not searching for a custom SQLServer property (sp_updateextendedproperty...) but only 'free comments zone' in the SDG scope (stored in the xml format of the sqlgen file for example).

And accessed via a menu (e.g. : Tools/Report) to obtain a report concerning the way the data are generated.
This report could display - in addition of that comments - the number of rows, if a csv is used, etc.

sample :
- table 1 : rows = 200 ; bla,bla,
- table 2 : rows = 1000 ; bla,bla,
- table 3 : rows = 500 ; bla,bla,
.
.


is it clear ?
regards.
