Visio To MySQL

Posted on 2006-04-10

I am currently designing some databases in Visio, and was wondering if there was a way to create MySQL tables from my diagrams, so I don't have to do it all by hand when I'm done. Can anyone tell me how or point me in the right direction?

    I'm not familiar with Visio beyond greating software object diagrams (which can generate, but I never use that).  However, if it has an integration with ODBC, you can install the MySQL ODBC connector, create a connection via ODBC to your database server, and Visio would handle the rest.
