Pinned topic Another question from a noob...

‏2012-09-06T00:32:33Z |
I have just reverse engineered a database and noticed that the default diagram that is created only shows the table name and relationships. How can I get the diagram to also show the columns? As I'm used to diagrams that show both the Table and columns.

I tried to find this in the help, and experimented with some of the property settings, but couldn't sort it out.

I'm sure there's a simple answer that's escaped me.

Thanks in advance.

Mick

    Hi Mick .

    You can show the columns/index etc from the diagram property view .
    Using toolbar menu Windows->Show View -> Properties to open the property view .
    Then click the blank space of the diagram , the properties will show the diagram's property view . In the "Filters" tab, the checkbox under the "compartment display options" allows to filter/unfilter the pk/column/index/trigger on the diagram .

    Thanks .

    Tao,

    Thanks for the quick reply! It's not very intuitive, but it does work!
