visual tool for database documentation

P: n/a
Hi,

We have a mysql database for which I would like to create a
documentation. For this I am searching for some tool that can read the
database structure (either from the mysql instance or from SQL code)
and create a visual picture of table relationships. Does anyone know if
such tool is available?

regards Jesper

The diagram that does this is called an entity-relationship diagram, or
an ER diagram.

DBDesigner 4 can do this.

Also MySQL has MySQL Workbench, a new similar product in beta.
