Hello,

Don't know, if this is the right category, so sorry if it isn't.

I am looking for a program for (Linux or Windows or Mac OS) which can create a good looking Entity Relationship Model (ER-Model). I tryed some out, and some are quite good, but there is no way to display the attributes of an entity (oval-circle).
The programs name is dds-pro and after creating the model you can export that as an plain-text file with the database structure. That is also a nice feature, but I need the attributes to be shown.

Thank you very much
Bye bye

Do you need it for a course? Schools are the only place I have seen the traditional ER model (with attrs in ovals). It is universally ignored in the professional world in favour of the (not sure of its real name) database model diagram, where the attributes are listed in the entity box beneath the entity name.

Try Googling with site:edu to search educational institutions - they would be far more likely to use this than anyone else.
