Sorry, none of the links were helpful.
In Oracle we would use TOAD,  SqlDeveloper would generaate ERD diagrams automatically

Hi Gram

Sorry. I am not sure of a specific tool but generally the clients will have an option to create the ERD diagram once you are connected to a DB. Hence see if there are any options with the client you are using.

The below links will give you an idea on the table that are in MM but not the direction to create an ERD on your own.

Very good listing.

It would be nice if i could log into the database using SqlDeveloper or TOAD (Oracle Development tools) and it generates ERD for me. Is it possible.

In transaction SE12 there is a button "Graphic" (CTRL+SHIFT+F11) where you can see the foreign relationships bewteen the tables. But there are usually a lot of tables involved so it looks in general very confusing.

The above comment show another way to check foreign key tables linked to a master table - say MARA as an ERD from within SAP. Just for general reference to all
