SQL database Diagrams

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.
