Documenting a database

You can generate documentation about objects in a SQL Anywhere database using the Database Documentation Wizard. The generated documentation contains information about the following database objects:

In addition to the object definitions, the documentation also shows the dependencies and references for each object. For example, documentation for the procedure dbo.sa_migrate_data includes the tables that it updates, inserts into, and deletes from, and the name of the procedure that calls it. You can choose to include object comments and systems procedures in the documentation.

The generated documentation is saved to HTML files, which makes it easy to navigate and review. This documentation is useful for documenting and reviewing your system.

To generate database documentation
  1. In Sybase Central, connect to the database you want to generate documentation for.

  2. From the Tools menu, choose SQL Anywhere 11 » Generate Database Documentation.

  3. Follow the instructions in the Database Documentation Wizard.
