Hello Good day every one!

We have PowerDesigner repository (installed on Oracle). I have extracted and checked-in all my objects by reverse engineering the objects (say V1). Now, I made few changes to the model (say adding couple of columns) and checked-in (say V2).

My question is how to generate the code (only for the changes and not for the entire database). I know how to compare versions and also version vs. workspace and I can see the tool is showing the differences.

However what I need is how to generate code for that.

If you need any specific details I can share. Thank you for your time, Viswa Viswa

Save the Model V1 as "Archived PDM", then load the model V2, select Database->Modify Database from the menu and fill in the path to the V1 APM. I would always opt to save modifications in an SQL file rather than updating the taget database directly, but that's yoru decision

First of all thank you for the responses.

Answer from "Reimer Pods", helped me. Thank you very much.

Database -> Apply Model changes to Database a. Choose either 'using an archive model' or 'Using data source' or 'using model from repository'. b. Generation type -> Script generation (I also agree with generating the script and not directly apply them).

You are right. I would love to have one as forum like this for PowerDesigner. Perhaps Sybase is listening ;-).
