Column CODE changes with NAME - why?

Column CODE changes with NAME - why?

Column CODE changes with NAME - why?

(OP)
I've been away from PowerDesigner for a year or two.  Used to use version 6, now I'm having to use version 7.5.

I reverse engineered my database into PD7.5 no problem.  Now I want to edit and make the column NAMES more user friendly.  When I do this, the column CODE changes and I believe that is bad - isn't the column CODE the name used in the database schema?

How to type a new name and leave the column as it is known to SQL unchanged?

RE: Column CODE changes with NAME - why?

Hello.

Go to tools - General options - Dialog - and deslect - Name to code mirroring.

This will stop the auto copy of name to codes. You are right in that it is the code that is generated to SQL.

Jay

Wow, just now got back to this issue.

I looked in TOOLS --> General Options and under Dialog there is no "Mirror" option available.

I'm using version 7.5.0.739 - could this be the problem?

RE: Column CODE changes with NAME - why?


I think this is only from PD 8 onwards.

I don't believe there is a fix in the version you are running - you will have to upgrade.
