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 ;)

I have been using the ApexSQL Doc tool for more than a week and I have to say it's fantastic. The output is well thought out and I appreciate the effort that you all put into it

I installed the upgrade and ran the software. I was able to document our database in about 30 minutes where before it took about 8 hours. So I experienced a much better speed improvement over the six times faster time you are advertising. The process was less resource intensive also. Good job

I'm impressed of the speed increase in creating database documentation with the new version. Congratulations, you have done a good job
