Auto generate data Dictionary from SQL database


Data dictionary creator  is a simple-to-use free tool that helped me immensely with a SQL Server database documentation.

It stores all the information in Extended Properties, so it’s easier to keep the documentation in sync with the database as it changes. I was able to generate a data dictionary with a couple of of mouse clicks after I have entered the connection string. The dictionary can be exported to various formats: Excel, XML, Word and HTML. Click on the reference  for a step by step tutorial on the usage of this utility. (The current version  support SQL Server 2008 too). This can be download from codeplex.
