Tool to capture column/table detailed description while designing

While creating tables I need to add a detailed description of each column/table for future reference.  Is there any third-party tool available in the market for this?

For adding detailed description to Column\Table, you don't require a third party tool as you can achieve it easily via sp_addextendedproperty procedure. Using the above procedure you can add comments/description to a database/table/column for later references.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/system-stored-procedures/sp-addextendedproperty-transact-sql

Once you have these values added via the above procedure, if you really want to use third party tools, then you can use the below tools as required
