Couple of Macro requests? Automated View Generation/Metadata update / Data Model Metrics


we are looking for a macro that can do the following:

1. Take each table in turn

2. Create a view based on the physical data model's table exact structure, with a specific pre-fix

Another one:

1. Can we have the Export Meta Data to Excel Version 3.1 extended to include the name of the Domain to which an attribute is bound?

Final One

Data Model Metrics:

Can we have a macro that produces the following metrics for all models in a DM1 file, split by model:

1) # of Entities

1b) # of Entities without definitions

2) # of attributes

2b) # of attributes without definitions

3) # of relationships

4) # of Primary, Alternate & Foreign Keys

Kind regards


  • Here's a macro that will create a basic view for all tables.  It'll add a suffix of _V but you can modify the macro to fit your needs.

    	For Each ent In mdl.Entities
    		Set MyView = mdl.Views.Add(HorizPo, VertPo)
    		MyView.Name = ent.TableName & "_V"
    		Set MyParentViewRelationship = MyView.ParentViewRelationships
    End Sub
