Description Jonathan Riddell 2004-12-17 19:13:04 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

There's no way to show a relationship between a
property in one "entity" and a property in another.  The terminology has changed a bit but I still don't see
how this can really be used for showing relationships between columns in various database tables.

The canonical example would be showing a how an index field in one table was used in another.  i.e. if I have
a table with "Trees" and another with "Branches" and there's an "ID" column in "Trees" and a "TreeID" column
in "Branches" there needs to be a way to show that those two columns in the different tables are linked.

good idea!
a new arrow for 1:1, 1:n and n:m relations between entities would be a nice first step. 
then being able to use these relations for table-fields, too, would be a very nice thing!
at the moment i only have a 1:n relation button for my ER-diagram entities :-(

thanks umbrello guys for your good work!
