Is there any way to customize the columns that are published in a data dictionary? My business users do not need to know any of the metadata associated with a given table level data element (type, length, primary key, etc.) and these columns are taking up a lot of valuable real estate, causing the more relevant column ‘Column Description’ to be basically unreadable.
When the data dictionary is generated in a word doc, it renders a separate table for each page, so I’m unable to just manually delete the unneeded columns at once. I’ve also tried copying + pasting the whole data dictionary into excel to try and format it there, but that seems to be even more complicated than manually deleting columns from 300+ tables.
I read through the VP documentation to see if there’s any way to address this prior to generating the data dictionary, but the links I found didn’t help me do what I need. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any recommendations for how to move forward?
