Viewing entity-relationship (ER) diagrams

You can view an entity-relationship diagram of the tables in a database using Sybase Central. You can also import and export the layout of the ER diagrams.


You must have PUBLIC system role.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to a database.

  2. Select the database, and then click the ER Diagram tab in the right pane to see the diagram.

  3. Click File » Choose ER Diagram Tables, and specify the tables to appear in the ER diagram.

  4. Click OK.
