Extracting PostgreSQL database metadata for presentation in Excel format

(2024-Mar-16)  I have been a big fan of using the Excel application for various tasks for more than half of my life. I believe it's the most widely used spreadsheet application in the world. I'm not shy to acknowledge that I've used it for very small tasks like taking structured notes during meetings, as well as creating sophisticated tables that can be shared with other users and handling larger data as updatable sourcing datasets for database applications. Let's not forget the well-established marketing campaign by Microsoft promoting Excel as the main analytical platform about 15 years ago, with some tools still available and some relegated to memory (Power Query, Power Pivot, Power Map, Power View). The good old days! Image by  Pexels  from  Pixabay
