Testimonials

You'll be happy to know that I purchased a copy of ApexSQL Doc, and I'm very pleased with it. There is a company called [name deleted] that makes a similar product but I'm afraid that their product is inferior to yours

Let me congratulate ApexSQL on a pretty amazing tool (ApexSQL Doc). I have been hired to review 51 databases over 9 servers, and subsequently migrate some of them to a new server. The client has no documentation, so the first step was to document what lived where. After a brief search, I found this tool. It has saved me at least a WEEK of work. Which is sad because those were billable hours ;)

Thank you so much for the updates in ApexSQL Doc, the application is working as per my requirements. The option to include or exclude computed columns from SQL database documentation is very helpful. Thanks again for the quick turnaround and update in ApexSQL Doc.
