Thank you!! This saves me a couple weeks of work!! Any chance of the reverse -- ActiveRecord to DBDesigner4? Kaspar Schiess wrote: >http://tua.ch/ruby/dbmodel/compute_model.rb > > -- M. Edward (Ed) Borasky http://linuxcapacityplanning.com

Hi, My twopennyworth here - a vote for AR2DBD4. With the project I'm currently working on I started with a BUFD in DB4 and found the script to generate models from that really useful (although I'm not sure it was the script mentioned here). Since then I've dumped that design and am working exclusively with models. So it would be nice to have a script that generated the DBDesigner4 XML so that one could view the overall schema now and then Cheers, Eric.
