Need to create great database documentation from your relational database?
While you can struggle on and create database documentation by hand, did you know that there are loads of great software tools available for creating database documentation automatically?
Database documentors are available for most of the popular relational databases, including: Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle.
In general a database documentor will create database documentation showing a database's tables, views, stored procedures and views. Many database documentation tools will also document database functionality that is specific to that type of database server. For example, many documentation tools for SQL Server will document DTS Packages and Full Text Indexes. A good database documentor should ideally show the relationships between database entities.
