Depending on your needs there is pretty good functionality on JDeveloper for this,not sure how it would scale to large schema's, I mever tried it. You can make an offline schema and then as part of that create an ER diagram, its good at drawing it out, I used it last year to do a graphical representaion of a really suspect view in Peoplesoft, it was a flagship of bad when JDeveloper drew it

I don't think what you're looking to do is one of the strengths of Toad for Oracle v9.6. For a "whole database", you'll most likely want a dedicated modeling tool. Many of the available tools are listed here: http://savage.net.au/Ron/html/drawing-tools.html ...including Toad Data Modeler (separate from Toad for Oracle that you already have), with which I have done what you are requesting. I'll leave it up to you to judge for yourself. I'm sure your Quest rep can get you started. HTH! GL! Rich Disclaimer: I'm a Toad bigot, using it since v4. See also http://asktoad.comI have TOAD profession version 9.6. I checked around Toad and can NOT find "reverse engineer" function in it. What I want is tool can get 'whole database" master-detail relationship and draw a graphic. Does anyone know Toad can do it? If NOT any "free" tool an do it? Thanks.
