Are you sure you looked at the column properties sheet?
Also, you have to import the PowerBuilder extended model definitions.
In your PDM:
Click on Model -> Extended Model Definition
2nd icon from the right on the toolbar (Import)
Select PowerBuilder.
In my PDM this gave me about 16 PowerBuilder extended attributes for my

I faced similar problem, Let me elaborate on what I did...

Since our environment is replicated setup, I wanted to include some details
about the tables and columns that are being replicated.
I could not find any means to do it, so I introduced extended attributes to
table level and column level.

I changed the template to take different generation time actions depending
on the values set for the extended attribute of the column
For doing this I added New items under the "Table", like "CreateReplication"
and called it from "AfterCreate" Item

Example: In "Table.AfterCreate"   Item entry, I have script as follows
..if (%ExtTablePartition% > 1)
..if (%Replication% != "None")

"Table.CreateReplication" Item has entry as below
--Please create the replication definition for %Replication%
sp_setreptable %TABLE%, true

The above works fine...

but the real problem is at the column level

At the column level I added scripts to "AfterCreate" and "AfterModify"

Column.AfterCreate  Item has the following entries (where the "RepColumn" is
a extended attribute)
..if (%RepColumn% != false)

The problem is "%TABLE%" does not have any value when the script is

I also tried including the same to "ModifyColumn" and "Create" items, but
..if (%RepColumn% != false)
statement does not evaluate properly because "%RepColumn%" extended
attribute is not available for this item.

Please let me know
1. if there is any thing I'm doing wrong
2. whether the same can be acheived in VBS
3. is this a bug that needs to be reported?

PowerBuilder Extended Attributes #5
Hi, 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 for us. I am currently reviewing PD 11 and also working with P...

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. Petro 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...

PowerDesigner 7.5 Extended attributes
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 desired. See the last section of the DBMS Definition File Reference Guide, in the Advanced Documentation book of the Online Documenation. Once you add an extended attri...

Help! how to define identity attribute in PowerDesigner for Powerbuilder datawindwo column
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.

PD9.5 default column constarint name from the parent table extended properties

I tried to reference the Table and the Outer objects, like %Outer.Attribute% and a %Table.Attribute%, but it does not work. Thanks Csaba 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 column constraints.

Generating Extended Attribute values when generating PDM from CDM

When I generate a PDM from the CDM (or vice-versa), I want the generation to preserve any value that exists for the attribute or column in the source model.
