Retrieve database Schema...

Hi everybody,

I am trying to find a way to export automatically an entire database schema
into an .xsd
A graphical way is to drag & drop the tables from Server Connection into an
empty .xsd file.
My problem is that the xsd does not include info concerning the
relationships between database tables.
Is there an automated way to retrieve programmaticall y the entire db schema
into a single xsd file?

In VB6.0 i could use a very useful method of ADODB.Connectio n...the
OpenSchema from which i could retrieve
much metadata info such as Tables, Columns & column properties, Primary &
Foreign keys etc....
How can i retrieve the same info using the .NET framework????

Thanks in advance for your help

I would start by creating an XML Schema...
