I have seen:

1. Narratives, with tables of the metadata of the tables, and some
descriptions of keys and how they are linked.
2. Erwin or UML style graphs or block diagrams (most popular, and most
useful maybe for understanding) lot of ways to make these.
3. Create statements like you say, in a file, these are exported
usually from most RDBMS servers with a command.
4. Auditors (for some reason) like screen shots of visual layouts
within client applications, and some kind of narrative mix.
