Export database model to a word document where each table is represented as Word table with Columname and ColumnType

It would be great for preparing Design Documents if we could export to db model to a word document, where each database table would be converted to a Word table where the first row would be the table name and there would be two columns. One the column name the other one the datatype. Maybe even a third row with the description.


GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

Thank you.
My request is similar to that one. For me, even only being able to export the tables would do.

About to do list: Does this mean it will be implemented sometime?

If yes, would you have a very rough estimate for the time?

Sorry, but couldn't estimate. We've got a holiday period right know. In September we'll back to the whiteboard and review our lists.

This feature has been introduced with yesterday release! You can now generate database documentation. There's a new "DOC" icon on the toolbar, next to an "XML" icon. You can choose between 3 file formats: PDF, HTML and DOCX.

Word document does not list contents of the subject areas correctly. Tables are listed correct but views and references simply list tables. Using example model provided I have added subject areas and a view, word doc has:

6. Subject areas

6.1. Subject area Product

6.1.1. Tables             - product             - product_category

6.1.2. Views             - product             - product_category

6.1.3. References             - product             - product_category

6.2. Subject area Purchase

6.2.1. Tables             - purchase             - purchase_item

6.2.2. Views             - purchase             - purchase_item

6.2.3. References             - purchase             - purchase_item


PDF has the contents correct except the "Areas" as section header vs "Subject Areas"

6. Areas

6.1. Product subject area

6.1.1. Tables

- product - product_category

6.1.2. Views

- v_product_w_images

6.1.3. References

- purchase_purchase_item - product_purchase_item - client_purchase - product_category_product_category - product_category_product

6.2. Purchase subject area

6.2.1. Tables

- purchase - purchase_item

6.2.2. References

- purchase_purchase_item - product_purchase_item - client_purchase - product_category_product_category - product_category_product 


Also subsection headers not consistent word vs PDF


"Subject area Product" in word, "Product subject area" in PDF
