I have a detailed XSD, expressed in several files connected together with includes.  I want to create a database schema or ERD (preferably for Oracle 10g) from those files using a tool.  What tool should I use, and what is the easiest way to create the schema, complete with tables and relationships?

Which tool you created this XSD, that tool might have option to export this into schema table.
If you can give name of this tool it would be easier.

I didn't create the XSD, it was given to me.  I am viewing it in Visual Studio 2010.

I went through the XSD manually and created a database structure from it.  This was very time consuming, but ultimately it was the only way to reliably create the ERD.  I could find no suitable tool to perform this task automatically.
