Hi,

each attribute has its own description. Example:

In table DEPT the primary key attribute DEPTNO has description “Department Number”.

In table EMP the foreign key attribute DEPTNO has description “Referenced attribute DEPTNO from table DEPT.”

Descriptions don’t migrate to child tables. The only way how to copy descriptions is via scripting.
