Project Description
PowerDoc is a collaborative database documentation tool which can be used to create accurate, professional quality database documentation. It keeps an audit of the documentation, so that it is easy to track the changes.


It is architected so that it can be easily extended to support any database, not limiting it to be used only for SQL Server.
Added comments is very simple and easy as opposed to using stored procs to add the comments. Once you start using it, you no longer need to remember the tables, functions and their uses. It would all be their in the tool.

Technology
The tool is built in WPF (.NET 4.0) using MVVM pattern.
