Need Data Dictionary for AdventureWorks2008


The database schema for the AdventureWorks2008 (SQL Server 2008) is noticeably different from the schema for AdventureWorks (SQL Server 2005). There are 9 new tables in AdventureWorks2008 (BusinessEntity, BusinessEntityAddress, BusinessEntityContact, EmailAddress, Password, Person, PersonPhone, PhoneNumberType, and PersonCreditCard), and 6 tables have been eliminated (EmployeeAddress, VendorAddress, VendorContact, CustomerAddress, Individual, and StoreContact).
While a data dictionary exists for AdventureWorks, Microsoft has indicated that there are currently no plans to update it for AdventureWorks2008.
Given the significance of the changes between AdventureWorks and AdventureWorks2008, I would greatly appreciate having Microsoft update the data dictionary for AdventureWorks2008 (especially for us database novices). Thank you.

Definitely something we're trying to find time to do!

The data dictionary is diffinantly needed. We are using the AdventureWorks 2008 for a class I am taking at the U of W and without the data dictionary it is making it difficult to do our assignments.
