Re: CASE (ERD) tool recommendations

Perhaps I'm ignorant, but
I have been using the XTG tool. I find that I cannot have a foreign key with a different name than the primary key -when I change one, the other automatically changes.

I could see why someone would like to use such a naming convention in their modeling, but is it mandatory?

Please Advise.
