Is there a way to add the Oracle table comments to the Entity Relationship Diagram


#1

I’d like to be able to see the Table comments included in the ER Diagram. We use them as well as the column comments.


#2

Are you looking to have the comments displayed alongside the objects when viewing the data model?


#3

I don’t care… Maybe in a box outside the table and column information or inside. I have a requirement to get this on the diagram somewhere close to the table and column information. Thanks…


#4

Sure. There is a macro available for download here which does exactly that. The macro only takes a few minutes to install and I just tested it with the latest version of TDM. Let me know if you have any problems.

Thanks… I will test it this afternoon….

Just because I am curious. Do you work for Dell?

I am asking because I opened a case with them and they responded that this could not be done.

Yes I do work for Dell - I am the Product Manager for Toad Data Modeler. Since this is a customization and not a standard product feature the support staff may not have been aware that this solution exists. I apologize for the inconvenience and I’ll follow up with support to let them know about these solutions.
