Part: VI Appendixes > Using the Database Design Report

Using the Database Design Report

→ For additional discussion of the Database Design Report, seeDatabase Design Report,” p. 780.


As soon as your solution has been filled with comments, descriptions, and meaningful element names, it is time to begin pulling the documentation together. FileMaker Developer 7 includes a Database Design Report (DDR) feature that is quite useful and may very well stand as the centerpiece for your system documentation. The report includes an overview of the system, along with detailed information about your database schema, including tables, fields, relationships, layouts, value lists, scripts, accounts, privilege sets, extended privileges, and custom functions. The report can be created as an integrated set of linked HTML documents or as a set of XML files. (The option to export the DDR as a FileMaker file, which was available in the previous version of FileMaker Developer, is no longer available in FileMaker Developer 7.)
