Database data dictionary

By rsellers,

This script returns a description of the database with references to all tables in the database with keys listed. If the column description has been filled out the listing includes that text.

If you want to get a report on the structure of each database, just add this script to each database, and then use a report writer (like Crystal Reports) to build a printed data dictionary.
