Hello ..I am relatively new to Mysql .I am using phpMyadmin as the graphical client.The database I working right now is pretty complex(I did not desgign it).I was wondering if there is any feature in phpMyadmin wherein I can see the structure of the tables in graphical form ...something like
an ER diagram..(like we see in SQL ..and in some clents in Oracle)

I appreciate your time.Would go a long way in helping me understand mysql db in general

I don't believe there is anything in phpMyAdmin to do it.  Part of the problem is that the default table type for MySQL doesn't enforce foreign keys.  Unless you are using InnoDB, MySQL has no idea what tables are linked to each other.  AFAIK, you'll have to draw such a diagram by hand.  You might import the tables into some tool like Access that has a quasi-decent relationship diagram editor, so all you have to do is drag and drop on the relationships.
