The conversion of Name and Comment in pdm physical model in PowerDesigner

When using PowerDesigner to design the conceptual model and physical model of database, Chinese is usually written in name or Comment, and English is written in Code. Name is used to display. The Code corresponds to the Column name in the database. The text in the Comment will be saved to the Comment in the database Table or Column. When the name already exists, it's troublesome to write the Comment again. You can use the following Code to solve this problem.

In addition, when REVERSE ENGINEER is used to generate PDM from the database, the Name and Code of the Table in PDM are actually codes. In order to replace the Name with the Chinese Comment of the Table or Column in the database, the following script can be used.

1. Copy content from Name to Comment

Option   Explicit 
ValidationMode   =   True 
InteractiveMode   =   im_Batch

Dim   mdl   '   the   current   model

'   get   the   current   active   model 
Set   mdl   =   ActiveModel 
If   (mdl   Is   Nothing)   Then 
      MsgBox   "There   is   no   current   Model " 
ElseIf   Not   mdl.IsKindOf(PdPDM.cls_Model)   Then 
      MsgBox   "The   current   model   is   not   an   Physical   Data   model. " 
Else 
      ProcessFolder   mdl 
End   If

'   This   routine   copy   name   into   comment   for   each   table,   each   column   and   each   view 
'   of   the   current   folder 
Private   sub   ProcessFolder(folder) 
      Dim   Tab   'running     table 
      for   each   Tab   in   folder.tables 
            if   not   tab.isShortcut   then 
                  tab.comment   =   tab.name 
                  Dim   col   '   running   column 
                  for   each   col   in   tab.columns 
                        col.comment=   col.name 
                  next 
            end   if 
      next

      Dim   view   'running   view 
      for   each   view   in   folder.Views 
            if   not   view.isShortcut   then 
                  view.comment   =   view.name 
            end   if 
      next

      '   go   into   the   sub-packages 
      Dim   f   '   running   folder 
      For   Each   f   In   folder.Packages 
            if   not   f.IsShortcut   then 
                  ProcessFolder   f 
            end   if 
      Next 
end   sub

2. Copy content from Comment to Name

Option   Explicit 
ValidationMode   =   True 
InteractiveMode   =   im_Batch

Dim   mdl   '   the   current   model

'   get   the   current   active   model 
Set   mdl   =   ActiveModel 
If   (mdl   Is   Nothing)   Then 
      MsgBox   "There   is   no   current   Model " 
ElseIf   Not   mdl.IsKindOf(PdPDM.cls_Model)   Then 
      MsgBox   "The   current   model   is   not   an   Physical   Data   model. " 
Else 
      ProcessFolder   mdl 
End   If

Private   sub   ProcessFolder(folder) 
On Error Resume Next
      Dim   Tab   'running     table 
      for   each   Tab   in   folder.tables 
            if   not   tab.isShortcut   then 
                  tab.name   =   tab.comment
                  Dim   col   '   running   column 
                  for   each   col   in   tab.columns 
                  if col.comment="" then
                  else
                        col.name=   col.comment 
                  end if
                  next 
            end   if 
      next

      Dim   view   'running   view 
      for   each   view   in   folder.Views 
            if   not   view.isShortcut   then 
                  view.name   =   view.comment 
            end   if 
      next

      '   go   into   the   sub-packages 
      Dim   f   '   running   folder 
      For   Each   f   In   folder.Packages 
            if   not   f.IsShortcut   then 
                  ProcessFolder   f 
            end   if 
      Next 
end   sub

 

The above two sections of code are VB scripts, and the method of using them in PowerDesigner is as follows:

    PowerDesigner->Tools->Execute Commands->Edit/Run Scripts

Copy the code and execute it. It is to operate the whole CDM or PDM
