Database refresh does not create foreign keys


P

peter.hattam

I have reverse engineered a Oracle 10G database into Visio. Somehow a
parent table got deleted and the FK column in all the child tables
were deleted as well.

When I try to refresh the model, the Refresh Model wizard picks up the
missing table and indicates that the FK column will be added to all
the child tables (as expected). However after the wizard completes,
the parent table is captured, however there has been no changes to the
child tables.

I am using Visio 2007 and have tried using several different Oracle
ODBC drivers with no luck.

Any ideas

Try forcing Visio to re-display the Relationships that create the FK
columns :
Right-click on the Table and select "Show Related Tables"
If that doesn't work, then the issue is that the Relationships are not
contained in the model any longer. If that is the case, you will be better
off starting with a clean Reverse Engineer. There are no tools to repair
the db schema 'guts' if the option above does not help.
