    Has any one created a database using Viso. How well do all the features work when it comes time to generate the database from the Model? Are there any draw backs? Is it recomended to use the Index creation features or should I just script them manually?
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I tried, but only able to workout by exporting to access database and then use upsize wizard to move over SQL server.

    Satya, what version must you have to export directly to SQL Server?

    Cheers!

    I mean to say its not possible to import directly to SQL server, as I tried so the workaround is defined above. I'd tried on SQL 2K with VISIO 2K2.

    VISIO's strength is not in DB Model.

    It can't compete with other tools, such as ERWin.

    Agree, ERWIN is the first and best tool to get more out of it.
    TO get the compatibility and ease of diagram the database VISIO is best at it.

    I also agree on that. I followed on this in the MS website and the only recent tool by MS that lets you Forward Engineer to SQL Server is Visio Studio .Net Architect Designer. I thought Viso 2000 had this capability since I once read it in a book SQL Server Design and T-SQL Programming by Michelle Poolet.



    Cheers!
