Posted on 2012-03-27

Hi Experts,

  I have a DB (which is already contains required tables, SPs, Views, and so on). All what I want to get is obtain ALL data model diagrams which identify the relationship between the tables.
Is there any way for that? So that I could understand the existing application clearly.

Say for example If the database contains 4 tables where 2 tables related with each other and another 2 tables have relationship. But 4 tables are not realted together. In this case I want to get 2 diagrams.

  Please let me know if easy way to achieve it. Thanks.

What version of SQL server are you running?  I know pretty much all of the way back to SQL 2000 offer table diagramming..  I would have to assume SQL 7.0 offered it too.
