Data Model To ERD Transformation

The Data Model to ERD transformation is a reverse engineering of the ERD to Data Model transformation.

The transformation uses and demonstrates support in the intermediary language for the following database-specific concepts:

Entity

Mapped one-to-one onto table elements.

Attribute

Mapped one-to-one onto columns.

Primary Key

Comes from the PrimaryKey type of column.

After transformation becomes the Entity Relationship Diagram:

Tip:

Sometimes you might want to limit the stretch of the diamond-shape Relationship connectors. Simply pick a Relationship connector, right-click to display the context menu, and select the Bend Line at Cursor option.
