How to visually group a star schema? RRS feed

  • Question

  • No.

    I never found the diagrams feature useful. You should use an external program for this, like Visio or a modelling tool.

  • Hi 

    Earlier I used a tool called DB Schema which is pretty easy & expects less time to develop and its not costly too :). Have a look on the tool.

  • Well, as earlier wrote:

    For documentation purposes I often use Visio. For working with partial schema views I use Redgate's Dependency Tracker.

    But you may should look in ERwin.
