Unanswered: Silly questions from a newbie - building diagrams
I am setting up a development server with SQL 2005 Dev Ed beta 2. I have been going around in circles trying to find out how to create a database diagram. Microsoft really knows how to make things difficult! Would someone mind telling me how to build a diagram of my new database?
Imagine again, Brett. I have not gotten a copy of the new SQL Server, yet, but they went and chucked Enterprise Manager...And Query Analyzer for that matter. Say hello to the SQL Developer Studio. After all. Don't developers and DBAs do the same thing?
And isql is gone, osql is gone, but bcp is stubbornly sticking in there.
After a day of messing around with the SQL 2005, I will gladly say screw Microsoft! May Bill Gates be inflicted with the fleas of a thousand camels. Now to uninstall the software and load up SQL 2000 Dev Ed.
Oh good heavens folks! Don't get your knickers in a twist over something in a beta package, especially when it has the potential to make your life a lot easier IF they get it right.
One of the things that Microsoft did right with Visual Studio is to make it highly customizable. You want the editor to behave like vi or brief, no problem, can do! You want to add functionality to show ERD for the table whose name that the cursor is in, can do!
Sure, its rough around the edges at the moment. It isn't the end of the world, and the potential intrigues me!
