Macro to update naming standards template mappings

I'm looking to automate some of our existing naming standards, ideally by using as much of the naming standards functionality built into ER/Studio Data Architect. I'd like to write a macro that automates the population of the mappings of a naming standards template, but exploring the API there doesn't appear to be an support for this?

Can anyone confirm this? Or better yet, provide an example to refute it?

  • FYI, if you really want to automate Naming Standards for columns, the best way to do that is to bind a Naming Standards Template to your model in Model Options, and make sure the 'Enable automatic name translation' option is checked on the Name Handling tab of Tools | Options.  That will automatically adjust your physical column names as you type your (logical) attribute names based on your Naming Standards Template.
