    Dibyajyoti – you rock! This is awesome. I work for a global corporation supporting PA business users and various interfaces feeding PA. I’m asked pull all sorts of data but don’t always know the links or relationships between tables, let alone the tables. Simple table descriptions help big time. Keep up the great work. Oh, and thank you for publishing this info. I know I’ve see it somewhere, probably in an Oracle PDF or some internal technical document. But I can never remember where.
