I have never used ERWIN 4.1 (only 3.5.2), so I might be completely wrong, but you have LOGICAL model and PHYSICAL model, so when you make, say, many-to-many relationship in LOGICAL model, you simply switch to PHYSICAL model and add as many attributes as you wish in a auto generated table. Or you can RESOLVE MANY-TO-MANY (context menu) relationship and get a table in LOGICAL model...
