Visio 2010 forward engineer add-in for office 2010

I have been scouring the internet for ages trying to see if there was a usable add-on for Visio 2010 that could export SQL Scripts. MS stopping putting that functionality in Visio since 2003 – which is a huge shame.

Today I found an open source project from Alberto Ferrari. It’s an add-in for Visio 2010 that allows you to generate SQL Scripts from your DB diagram. It’s still in beta, and the source is available.

This saves me from having to do all my diagramming in SQL Server / VS 2010. And brings back the much needed functionality that has been lost.
