Database Documentation Software for Oracle

Dovberman asked
Last Modified: 2014-09-03
I am a new employee attempting to support an Oracle database. I have 20 years experience building and maintaining SQL Server applications.  There are over 100 tables in the Oracle database.  Application, database, and code modules are not documented.  The company and I depend on getting information from 10 year veterans. It is not surprising that IT support people last less than 6 months.

What Oracle database documentation software do you recommend.

I am looking at DBScribe. I need to list table names and descriptions, and column names and descriptions.


Name: xyz-Master

Column Name      Column Description
Master_RevNum  Foreign key to the Revision table
Master_OrdNum Foreign key to the Order table
Master_ChgNum Foreign key the Changes table

I will enter the object descriptions.
