Add Existing Models to Project

When you create a new project, you might want to add already existing models to it. This can be achieved in two ways:

  • In Application View or Model Explorer right-click a model and select Add to Project | *Project Name*.

  • Project Add Model dialog displays and you can decide where to save the model.


  • In Application View, right-click your project and select Add Opened Model

  • Project Add Model dialog displays and you can choose from currently opened models and specify their location in the Project structure.



Generate Project Report

Now you can easily create a report for your Toad Data Modeler projects.

To create a project report

  • Right-click a project in Application View and select Report
  • Select the desired format for your report
  • Select the destination:
    • Intelligence Central
    • A designated folder
  • Choose your layout and style for the report and preview the look below
  • In Options select what you want to include in your report
  • In Models & Actions select which models you want to include and which Model Action you want to perform
  • After clicking Execute the report will be created in Intelligence Central or your local destination folder


XSL Transformation

This feature allows you to create user outputs for your physical models very fast. The output can be in any format that supports XSL language - e.g. HTML, PDF, CSV, text or XML.

You select among various XSL templates. Each template generates a different output (HTML, CSV etc.) Advanced users can customize the templates and modify their content to generate an output that will fit their needs.

You can generate the following reports or outputs:

  • Comments (HTML)
  • Complete XML (XML)
  • Entities (CSV)
  • Notes (HTML)
  • Tablespaces (HTML)
  • To Do Report (HTML)

To generate any of the outputs

Select Model | Generate Report | Reports / XSL Transformation.
