ER/Studio provides graphical ER diagrams, round trip engineering,
database comparisons (design vs database, design vs design, etc...),
logic and physical database design tools, etc... see
Utilizing only scripts for the link between ER/Studio and Mysql
does not allow a link back from the database back into the graphical design
Anyway, they do not support mysql as a target database. I tried to use an
but they first check to see if the link is to a database they support and if
not they kill the process. Anyway I could not get it to work. Guess that
is why they provide
The good news is with ERwin the database link, round trip engineering, and
all that good
stuff works great now. (This didn't function the last time it tried with
ERwin over a year ago.)
Thanks for your reply!
