This is  a followup to www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Q_20914198.html ,

I am using Visio to design a database.  I have two tables that I am trying to link together, accounts and routes.  Now, the accounts table has two entries, sales_route_id, and delivery_route_id.  These obviously have route_id in the routes table as foreign keys for both columns.  I create two "relationships" in visio, one for each column, and I get "error L3020: routes_accounts_FK1 : Foreign key relationship has same parent and child tables as routes_accounts_FK2, but does not have different forward and inverse verb phrases.

What I want to know is, since this is a Visio-only attribute and does not effect my database at all, is there any way to turn this error check off? If so, I can't find it.
Thanks!
Rich

change teh verb phrases for the two relationships "DELIVERS TO" and "SELLS TO" for example.  That should resolve the 'error'

Yeah, I know. But I have about 130 verb phrases to change, which is extremely unpleasant to do, without any benefit in my physical database. That's why I want to shut this error check OFF!!

you cannot turn the error check off.  YOu either correct the Verb phrases, or delete them completely.  Those are the only possibilities.
