ACT Column-Dictionary-Tables Documents

Hi Matthew,

 

I have not requested the SA password utility since ACT went to SQL 2008. It used to be delivered with 3 helpful documents:

 

ACTColumnsDocument.rtf

ACTDataDictionaryDocument.rtf

ACTTablesDocument.rtf

 

Are these documents still updated every version? If they are, how can I get them?

 

Thanks,

Similar reports can now be run via ActDiag the FieldSummaryReport lists each FieldDescriptor, the actual column name and the table in which it resides, additionally the SA password is no longer required for read access to the SQL database, you can simply log in to management studio with your windows account, assuming it has administrative rights.

Thanks Matthew, I know the actdiag reports. Those documents that used to be available in many cases had detailed comments about field usage and content definitions. Do I take it they are not available anymore?
