For generating quick, in-house docs SQL doc is great. A couple of features that I would find very useful are:

Output Filtering
Choose which items are displayed within at each level. For example, only show Tables or choose to not display details such as teh statistics for a table.

Image Support through Dependnecy Checker
I've been using Dependency checker to generate images focused on a specific item to provide a graphical view of the dependencies. The probelm is that I have no way to collect teh images easily into a report. The SQL Doc report would seem like a logical place. So, maybe some option to add an image to an item or even better, generate and image through Dependency Checker.

Spell Check
My typing sucks - I'm constantly transposing characters. Having a spell check built in woudl be a nice option.

Hi there,
Thanks for the feedback.
You should be able just to click on Tables in order to document all the tables. We are thinking about additional configuration options (for example not displaying SQL or the Statistics or ....)
Integrating with Dependency Viewer is a cool idea. We currently have no plans to do this, but hopefully we can re-look at that idea in the future.
Yes I must admit my spelling is awful, it's a feature that I would like too.
Best Regards
David

David,
Thanks for pointing out the the checkboxes. They were the first thing I noticed but then quickly overlooked. That helps a lot already.

Is there any "back door" perhaps for embedding HTML links into the documentation area? That way I at least could add a link to images exported from Dependency tracker.

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick,
I like your thinking but nothing intentional from the SQL Doc end.
I have spoken to Bart (one of the lead developers on SQL Dependency Tracker) and he said that if you exported the image out of Dependency Tracker as a meta file, you could in theory generate an image map that hooked up to the relevant HTML pages. This would be very time consuming but theortically possible.
Sorry not to be more helpful.
Regards
David
