XML output?

Do you think we could get an xml output? It shouldn't be too hard and would allow me to merge the db descriptions with other xml-based auto-documentation using xslt.

    Hi Tim,
    I like your idea. Currently SQL Compare has an XML output report style of XML. Perhaps this may work for you..
    An XML formatter for SQL Doc is something that we may consider in the future.
    Best regards

    I've also got a competing product called dbdesc that works entirely with xml. The outputs are then reformatted with xslt. However your info is of a higher quality :)

    Hi Tim,
    I have found in the past that XML & XSLT can run into performance issues with large XML files. This was one of the reasons why raw XML files were not initially choosen...
    I am glad that you like the information that we produce.
    Regards
    David
