SQL database Diagrams

2 New Member
Pretty new to SQL, but I have had the good luck to be responsible for documenting a very sophisticated program that is a .net application. Anyhow the SQL side of the app is NOT documented with the database diagrams in SQL enterprise manager or with anything else for that matter.

I am not sure how this person setup the relationships/ primary key / foreign keys for these tables , but they appear to have none. How does one untangle the system and use database diagrams (or other tool) to get this system documented?

Any help from the experts is really really appreciated.

visio is nice but the way to go is undoubtedly MicroOlap.
Believe you me - i have designed schemas w/ both and the latter is hugely more intuitive.

Also, though I have never done it, (im pretty sure) if you add your database to Visual Studio 2005 it can spit a diagram out for you - w/out the need to fill in any details.

When you create database diagrams in Enterprise Manager, the details for constructing those diagrams is saved into the dtproperties table. This table includes an image field which contains most of the relevant infomation, in a binary format. SQL Enterprise manager offers no way to script out those diagrams, so I have created two Transact SQL components, one User Function and one User Procedure, which together provide a means to script...

I've been trying to get the scripts posted earlier to the group by Clay Beatty to work properly. Using the three components he posted, I have managed to get a new SP generated.

Has anyone run into something like this before? Or used the scripts I...

Recently, I've been working on an Access application that is supposed to be the prototype for a larger system that will be developed by a team using Oracle tools, etc. As such, everything I do must not only work, but it must be easy to understand and duplicate.

Our MS SQL (SQL Server 2000) DBA has database privileges locked down pretty tightly. We end users/developers do not have administrator privileges for most databases. That arrangement has worked out OK for the most part. However, it's a bit aggravating that we can't even create our own database diagrams. When we attempt to do so (in Enterprise Manager), we get a dialog that says "You do not have sufficient privilege to create a new...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
