If you or your friends / colleagues are new to PowerDesigner, no matter what you’re using it for, there is bound to be something that you’re not sure of the best way of doing, like including existing relationships on a diagram, or preventing the creation of graphical synonyms. Most data modelling tools don’t support graphical synonyms, so you may say “What the Heck?” to yourself when you first see them (they’re the symbols with numbers after the names – there are three symbols here for the SalesOrders table, all linking to the same definition):
Anyway, I’d love to know what knowledge is the most useful to PowerDesigner newbies, so here’s my offer:
- one day of my time FOR FREE to help your newbies with their questions, as long as you don’t mind me documenting those questions
I’m based in Southern England, so there’s an obvious caveat here – I need to be able to travel to your site and back in a day.
If you’re interested, send me a message.
By the way, I’ve just updated my blog post on the topic of including existing relationships on a diagram.
