Generate SQL create script will generate utf16 of utf32 file, can I change this?
The reason I want to change this is because my current version control software (SubVersion 3) can't handle utf16 and utf32 as text files. So I can't diff the revisions.Thanks!

SQL Server uses UCS-2 which is UTF16 so all you need is to do Unicode collation, in 2000 it can be enabled on the column level and in 2005 you can even use it in your DML (data m...HSQL-script generated in Powerdesigner

I can reverse engineer the current database, and then
compare it to the existing model, but all of the

I know there has to be a way to do that.

I'm writing a DBMS-file for a database which is not defined
in powerdesigner. In this database it is possible to create
a table check (in which we can specify the values of the
columns). When I create a new column in an existing table
and I put a table check on this table (which includes the
new created column), the creation sequence in the generation
script is wrong: the table check is created before the
column is created in the table. Is it possible to change the
sequence in which the Objects are 'mentioned' in the

I'm currently using PD11 and SQLServer2000 schema... though I'm actually
generating scripts for a SQLServer2005 database.
1) Is there a new schema that I can use for PD11 and SQL2005? I understand
it is available for PD12 (which is in beta)...
2) If not, I am trying to generate scripts that make use of "Schemas" in
and I am running into some difficulty with some of the generated scripts.
e.g. execute sp_bindefault MY_DEFAULT_VALUE, 'MyOwner.MyTable.MyColumn'
The problem is that "MySchema" is NOT being generated.

We were hopimg to generate some test data by creating a script from the
existing Informix database using the dictionary/profile option and the
database/generate test data option. Unfortunately the options only seem to
allow one column of data to be extracted. If more than one column is
selected (e.g. select * in the sql window) then the 2nd and subsequent
columns are populated with data from the first column.

In DataArchitect 6.1.3 and earlier the datatypes had a T_ prepended to them
automatically (e.g. T_MYDOMAIN). Now in PD7.5, they don't have the T_
This causes problems for me because: if some of my customers have had their
database created with the old domain name, T_MYDOMAIN, and some customers
will now have their databases created with new domain name, MYDOMAIN, then:
A) Stored procedures that use T_MYDOMAIN won't work with databases that use
MYDOMAIN, and vice versa.
B) Schema update scripts won't know which domain names to use.

Prior to this last week we've been using PowerDesigner 8 to
manage all of our database models. However, we recently
purchased version 11.0 and it is my job to check all of our
models in version 11 and iron out any kinks we have might
come across. In doing so today I opened one the workspace
for one of our database models, opened the CDM, and clicked
"Generate Physical Datamodel" (so I could check for
differences) when I noticed the naming convention for domain
defaults had been changed. In version 8 a default value was
prefixed with "D_" having the same name as...PowerDesigner 12.0 Generating Database Scripts from PDM
Hi, I'm creating a ms-SQL Server 2000 Script to create my
database, based on a PDM, the problem is that I can do it
only once after creating the PDM (from a CDM), if I want to
re-create it (after some change on my CDM then recreation of
my PDM) the list of database objects (packages-Entities)
appear empty, so I have to close PowerDesigner, open it
again, open my CDM, Generate my PDM, then create the Script.
Does anyone know how to solve this?, I guess is something
over the config environment, but can't figure it out.

The answer is yes, you must just convince PD to open with the right model -
this may involve setting
your pref so pd opens without any /last model or changing your regisrty so
it open with your model and then changing reg back after your gen finished.
