Importing comment from word/excel --> powerdesigner

Hi,

We use PowerDesigner as a 'cleaning tool' in order to
normalize numerous database. When a database has some
documentation (Mainly data dictionnary) in word or excel
format I would like to import those comments on the sybase
document (cut and copy or whatever)

Any idea ?

Thank for your help

I use VBScript to pull comments from excel spreadsheets.  You can find it on 
the Sybase CodeXchange web site, along with a few other scripts I've 
written.

How to migrate from PowerDesigner 6 to PowerDesigner 10
I have several PD 6 models I wish to migrate to version 10 and have a few questions: 1) It appears that opening the model with the new version will automatically convert it, but are there any issues I should be aware of first? Is there a conversion program for changing from such an old version? 2) How do I migrate the Process Models? It appears I can open them but it appears the porcess flow charts are gone! 3) Are there any other pitfalls of which I should beware? Cool, even V12 can open V6 models. The ProcessAnalyst model probably won't open cleanly. Man, I haven&...

PowerDesigner and ERWin Imports
I am trying to import an ERWin model (version 3.5.2) into PowerDesigner 6.1. However, I keep getting the message: �An error occurred during the import.� and the import stops at �Importing Business Rules'. I have only got an older version of ERWin that will not pull up the data model either. Is PowerDesigner 6.1 capable of importing an ERWin model created in version 3.5.2? If so, do I need to set some sort of configuration options to allow this conversion to process? Is there any way to determine what is failing during the import process? Please send responses to andrea.ball...

PowerDesigner
We are currently running PowerDesigner 6.0.0 and 6.1.1.560 on Windows NT and are planning to upgrade to Windows XP in the new year. Are these versions of PowerDesigner compatible with XP or would we need to upgrade or apply patches? They are not certified, but there shouldn't be a problem. Of course, you really should upgrade anyway to take advantage of the newer functionality. -- Michael F.

Reserved words for PowerDesigner
Hi all, Using PD9.5.2 EBF6, I reversed engineer an Oracle (9iR2) table that has a column called "NO" (Not a reserved word for Oracle). During the RE process PD transformed the column name/code to "Column_5" (fifth column in the table). Then I tried the same thing with an access Database table using the tool provided by Sybase to perform RE with Access. I got the same result. So my question is, does the word "NO" have a special significance to PD? Thanks I'm pretty sure it does. I can't find a version of PD that will handle "NO...

About PowerDesigner
is PowerDesigner included in the enterprise version of PowerBuilder 6.0 or 6.5? if so, which CD is PowerDesigner in? PowerDesigner is part of the EAStudio package but not the PB stand-alone package. I believe that is still the case even today with PB8. If you get EAStudio, you get PB, PowerJ, PowerDesigner (remember that with PB8, PowerSite has been rolled into the product and doesn't exist on it's own any more). If you get just PB, you get just PB. steve [TeamSybase] Dear Steve, Now I find out EAStudio. I can see the following options for installation: Power...

The why/when of Powerdesigner.
I'm having a hard time using Powerdesigner beyond just a data-modeling tool. I'd really like to understand how to use it as a full SDLC tool. It sure looks like it can, but I don't see how to really go about it, especially in light of the fact that organizations already have SDLC standards. How do I fit PD into that lifecycle? I'd really like to learn how to generate code from it, which involves understanding how to get at the metadata and visual basic and such. I used Erwin's macro capabilities and was completely blown away by the power. Now I see PD, and I...
