Hi Paul,

You can try these products:

  1. ER Studio Probably the best value (features/price/performance) 1a) Power Designer - What didn't you like, what didn't it do?
  2. Rational Rose 98i (Only use if part of complete (re)-design development effort)
  3. ERwin Recently sold to CA, very popular but I don't like the product and it's over-priced.
  4. Visio Enterprise Will create ERDs by reverse engineering the database, not really a database design tool.
