There are several examples where data theft has halted businesses or resulted in bad press that will leave a tarnished image. For instance, in 2017,...
ER/Studio Data Architect supports programmatic event handling.
To better understand when these events are triggered, I’ll share an updated script of the sample macro: ERSBasicHandlers.bas
Moreover, I’ll also share a second macro which speaks the definition of the selected entities|tables.
In a previous post, we have seen how to schedule a reverse engineering of a database using a macro and a quick launch file.
Likewise, I’ll share a macro which also uses the reverse engineer function, through the DiagramManager.ReverseEngineerObject.
However, instead of using a quick launch file, the macro directly extracts the connection settings from an Excel workbook.
Many different models and notations are supported by ER/Studio Data Architect. A model has one of these 2 model notations: Relational or Dimensional.
When we use a Dimensional diagram, there’s an additional tab available in the Table editor, Dimensional, where we can select the Dimensional Model Table Type and the Table Type and Data Architect updates how the diagram objects are displayed.
In this blog post, I’ll share a macro which replaces the Dimensional Model Table Type and the Table Type for all the Tables|Entities or a selected subset.
When we use ER/Studio Data Architect, we can create Submodels to document specific metadata.
For example, we can create Submodels to manage our Conceptual Data Model, to display the datatypes and Null option, or to show the Attachments and Data Security Information bound to the Entities | Tables.
In this blog post, I’ll share 2 different macros which can also export|import the entity and attribute attachment binding information to|from Excel.

With ER/Studio Data Architect, we can use the Data Dictionaries to define Reference Values and to bind them to our Attributes|Columns.
I’ll share a script to generate the lookup tables for all the columns of the selected Tables which use Reference Values Lists. With Physical Data Model, it also generates in the Post SQL tab of the created Reference table, the Insert statements.
After a while, you may have added lots of projects in your ER/Studio Repository.
In this blog post, I’ll share a script which can generate a worksheet with all the Diagrams added to the Repository and remove diagrams from the Repository using a list provided through a spreadsheet.
