Project Description
Somehow Microsoft decided not to include this feature in 2010 version of Visio.
Visio Forward Engineer Addin for Visio 2010, adds the ability to generate the database scripts directly from the database model defined in Visio 2010. It is developed in C#.

Idea
The original idea of this project was developed by Alberto Ferrari*. The original project can be found at http://www.sqlbi.com/Default.aspx?tabid=173.

This project has two main versions:
  • Version 1.0 that is Alberto's original version that was cleaned and created an automatized setup.
  • Version 2.x that is a completely rewritten project that offers many new features and improved code base.

Version 1.0 is available for download, while version 2.x is still under development.

If you want to join this project or understand better the source code of the project, an article will be online soon.

More informations as the documentation will come soon.
