Hi, I'm looking at buying a few licenses of SQL Doc and was wondering about my idea of using XML as an intermediate format. I've been creating a database documenter, and have had some success, but Red-Gates tools is a much more usable tool for adding the documentation.

My suggestion is that you used and supplied intermediate XML files and customisable XSLT files to generate the HTML files (and hpp and index files) - then the more experimental among us could play with :

a) custom properties
b) custom html files and
c) custom contents tree (maybe I want my tables to be grouped by schema?)

That would allow me to tick all the boxes for what I want from a SQL DB Documentation tool.

Otherwise a fantastic simple-to-use tool.

Hi Alex,

this is a really interesting idea. We are currently developing SQL Doc 2.0. A big part of the project has been to re-architect the product to support multiple output formats. We are committed to adding MS Word output for 2.0 as it has been the most requested addition.

However, adding support for further outputs e.g xml, pdf will be far simpler for us to add in the future. Doc 2.0 should be ready towards the end of November.

Thanks for your input, Tom
