Hi, I've upsized my database from MS Access 2003 to MS SQL Server 2008 Express Edition. Now, how do I view the  relationships I've made in SQL Management Studio? I was hoping it'll be like access where I can graphically view the all the tables with relationships. Thanks in advance

    Choose Database Diagrams, left click new diagram and choose the objects you want to see.

    That's about it,

    The Database Diagram functionality exists in Management Studio Express, I believe (I don't have it handy on this machine to verify)

    But you should be able to create a database diagram and include relationships.
