The reverse engineer tool is great. It would be nice if I could pick and choose the objects to reverse engineer. For example It would be nice to right-click on a table and get an option to Reverse Engineer just that table. It would also be nice to select which objects (tables, views, stored procs) to be reverse engineered.

Just my $0.02.

Try this:

1. Create a new script
2. Drag&Drop the table from the treeview into the script-windows between
begin and end.

Same technique works with procedure, functions and indexes.

You can get partway there - basic table definition, no indices, triggers etc

Open the database, create a new sql window, from the treeview open tables and drag the table you want across to the new sql window - magic happens Smiley

WOW! That's a nice Easter Egg. I just tried it with a New SQL window
and it works also. Wait until David C. here's about this.

Shame it can't all be with one operation Smiley

True. Smile

But hopefully we'll get a possibility to reverse engineer a table with
all indexes and triggers in one operation. I think, Tim has it on his list.

Dead right, but the last time I asked the list was about a foot and a half thick Smiley

Wow!  Roy (and of course, Tim!), that is the coolest trick in EDB Manager I
never knew about!!  Thanks so much for pointing that out--I had no idea!

Very Nifty!  Thanks again,
