Automatically document your SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Postgres and Access databases

We came across SqlSpec from Elsasoft a couple of months ago but never had time to look at it. Well this week whilst in India I found the time to check it out.

I have used it to document our SQL Server 2005 databases and it seems pretty comprehensive. The current release version does not document Partition Schemas, Partition Functions, Full-Text Catalogs and Full-Text Indexes so I emailed the developer on Sunday and within 12 hours he had responded with a new test version which contained support for those items. I have since emailed he with approximately 15 other suggestions which he plans to add to the product.

We are very happy with it so far.
