Hi, guys...I've been documenting our SQL system and I understand that there
is something called a "Data Dictionary".

Now, from my research, I think I've figured out most of the information
elements that belong IN the dictionary (table name, columns name, data
types, length, PK/FK, allowed values, etc.) , but what I cannot figure out
is if it has a formal design. I've searched on this on the web and come up
with several resources. However, they all seem to present data in any format
they choose.

I'm thinking that a data dictionary is similar to an API document; they're
kinda standard. Is this accurate? Do I understand what a DD is? Am I so
stupid that I should be ground up into hot dogs?
