Database

what are the options for displaying a database relationship into Visio?

RE: database

Hello Nick,

Thank you for your question regarding Databases and Visio.

It would be helpful to clarify what you are asking about:

is it:

1.
You want to draw a diagram in Visio that represents a database?

or, is it:

2.
You want to link a database to Visio?


Kind regards,

Richard

RE: database

Hi Richard
It is a case of me not knowing what I need to know, plus we did not cover datasbases in the course that I had with STL last Friday.

Both of your options are appealing as I work with databases and I use Visio to 'mock up' report designs. So if those are the only 2 options then could you summarise what Visio can do for me with databases with those 2.

I have a sneaking feeling that Visio could be very pwerful in this area but do not know how.

Many thanks
Nick

RE: database

Hi
how is this coming on, do you need any more information?
thanks
Nick

RE: database

Hello Nick,

Thank you for your question and sorry for the delay in responding.

When you first open Visio, instead of choosing a new blank document, have a look at the templates section. There's a category called Software and Databases where you may find a suitable starting point.

You can also open the Software and Database stencils from the (More) Shapes pane.

Drag and drop shapes onto the page as normal.

The following link has some useful information as to what you can do after that.

Hope this helps.


Kind regards
