    Unanswered: Need tool for drawing chart or diagram of complex existing database

    Hi
    I need to produce a poster with a chart or diagram of tables and relations in an existing database (90 tables, 1200 columns).

    Does anyone know of a tool that can pull this off and map the database in a sensible way more or less automatically? I would really prefer something that requires a minimal amount of manual work because it is so time consuming, the database evolves a lot, and I have to produce new versions now and then.

    And of course it has to be able to export it to a file for print (.pdf is fine)

    Thanks!
    /Rickard

    If you've defined your relations with FKs, you can use ERStudio.

    Sybase PowerBuilder

    Just posting a brief update. Most have pointed towards Sybase PowerBuilder. I downloaded a trial but so far it does not look good

    Have you mixed up Powerbuilder with Powerdesigner? The first is an application-builder, the second is for databasedesign...
