I am working with a Sql Server database where the field descritions are going to be quite complex. Is there a way to create the field description so that when I generate the database documentation I can force carriage returns to make the description multi-line and more reader-friendly?

yes - try setting "preserve linebreaks" to UNCHECKED in the gui. This is on the "options I" page.

I am assuming you have this checked now. If it's checked, then the linebreaks that appear in the docs are the same as those embedded in the extended property itself.

if you don't care exactly where the linebreaks appear and just want them to flow with the rest of the docs, then this setting should be unchecked.
