...PowerBuilder Extended Attributes #5
I am still using PD 6 AppModeller very successfully to design databases and
various elements of the editing functionality in datawindows, e.g. dropdown
list boxes, checkboxes, etc. In our environment it makes sense to design the
database and certain elements of the user interface concurrently. Most of
the datawindows are generated and compiled with no further modification,
other datawindows are created on-the fly. The ability to describe and
generate the relevant data to the PbCat... tables makes our methodology work

Hello everyone. I'm creating a database using PowerDesigner Physical
Architect 8.0 and would like to enter descritpions for each of my table
columns that can be imported into PowerBuilder's external attribute
PBCATCOL table. I see that PowerDesigner also allows you to define external
attributes, but I'm not sure how to set these up for PowerBuilder and
import them into that tool when I generate the database.
Can anyone help?
...PowerBuilder Clientside extended attributes in PowerDesigner
I wnat to know the status of support for PowerBuilder Clientside extended
attributes in PowerDesigner. Any information you could provide regarding
the status of this would be greatly appreciated. As far as I can tell, the
support was dropped after appmodeler v6? True?
Thank you for your help.
Firstly, the PowerDesigner newsgroup would be a better place to ask
this instead of the PowerBuilder newsgroup. Going to get a heavier
concentration of people that use it over there.
Secondly, from a PB perspective, I think you'd need to clarify what
you're asking. From a...PowerBuilder Attributes.. in PowerDesigner 7.5?
Is there any PowerDesigner (PD) release 7.5 equivalent to PD AppModeller for
PowerBuilder (Vers. 6)? Or does PD 7.5 include ist functionality? If so, how
is it possible to access and define PowerBuilder Attributes within PD 7.5
and how can the corresponding PowerBuilder system tables be generated (PD 6
has the functionality, Generate PowerBuilder Attributes..').
If PowerBuilder Attributes can be handled in PD 7.5 I like to know the
following: Is there any tool that allows to import PowerBuilder Attributes
from a Version 6 PDM, because it seems that they get lost, when the PDM is

Need help with extended attributes. I am using data architect and I do not
find extended attributes on the table properties as help states? Are they
still supported in pd 7.5?
Extended attributes in PD 7.5 are very closely integrated with the
Database or Object Language Definition files.
Thus to add them you need to go into the definition for your
particular database or object language and add them to the objects
See the last section of the DBMS Definition File Reference Guide, in
the Advanced Documentation book of the Online Documenation.

I know how to specify the database attribute for identity column in
PowerDesigner ( I am using AutoIncrement as default since I am using ASA 6 )
but I need help setting the corresponding datawindow column's attribute for
identity column. I saw in PowerDesigner help for identity but it did not
make sense to me. I can not find the place to specify identity.
In PowerBuilder datawindow, there is an attribute for Identity that tells PB
to retrieve the value of the column after update if the value of the column
is was null.
I'm stumped on this one.

I don't think you can do that with extended attributes. However, you should
be able to write a VBS script to apply the naming convention to all of your

Michael...Generating Extended Attribute values when generating PDM from CDM
I've defined an extended attribute for every attribute
for my CDM's and PDM's. I've given each the same name,
'Expected Growth Percent'. When I generate a PDM from the
(or vice-versa), I want the generation to preserve any value
that exists for the attribute or column in the source model.
The advanced user documentation hints that it should be
possible using VBS, but I don't know VBS well enough to be
to verify if this is true for my version, 184.108.40.2060.
Does anyone know how to do this?
