    Got a collegue called Erwin. Nice guy and an expert in microsoft clustering with db2. Do you mean him?
    Somewhere between " too small" and " too large" lies the size that is just right.

    I have used Erwin in the past it is a pretty nice modeling tool. I did not need all of its features, basically I used it during it to create a graphical depiction of the tables in a system and how things relate to one another. Developers usually appreciate the graphical depiction because it gives them a nice easy way to see how things are related and what columns to join on etc. Erwin has a decent interface and will pull the existing ddl from the database and generate new ddl with your changes. There are several competitors to Erwin, so you may want to evaluate a few different ones. Hope this helps.

    I'm not clear on what you are going to use Erwin for, but if the purpose is to generate documentation you might want to have a look at schemaspy:

    Take a look also at ERStudio from Embarcadero.
