    Have you defined the important entities that need to be included in your new database?
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    database design from existing DBases

    I am in the process of identifying the entites.
    The problem is : 3 legacy applications store the same piece of information with different names in their databases.

    I am building a new application taking attributes, union of all systems.
    because there is no DB design design avaialble for existing systems.
    I am using profiler and tracking the queries fired on to server and identifying the attributes and entities.

    Is there any other best approach for doing this?

    Thanks,
