ERD tool - MySQL

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a tool which allows the user to create a new mysql database visually i.e. with an ERD - entity relationship diagram? The visual representation is more important than actually building the database in a GUI - I am familiar with the command line or phpmyadmin etc. The reason for asking is that I'm building a complex database from scratch for the first time and think it would help me to conceptualise the data if I can see it visually. Also, would this forum be an appropriate place to post an ERD ...

    Default ERD tool

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a tool which allows the
    user to create a new mysql database visually i.e. with an ERD - entity
    relationship diagram? The visual representation is more important than
    actually building the database in a GUI - I am familiar with the
    command line or phpmyadmin etc.

    The reason for asking is that I'm building a complex database from
    scratch for the first time and think it would help me to conceptualise
    the data if I can see it visually.

    Also, would this forum be an appropriate place to post an ERD and get
    feedback on the best way to do things? I do have some database
    experience so would not be expecting people to build it for me

    many thanks,

    lukemack.

    lukemack,

    If you are looking for Open Source then you might want to try DBDesigner.
    http://fabforce.net/dbdesigner4/

    It is somewhat limited and a little bersome. If you can pay for it, then
    the following are all good products:

    Quest Toad Modeler
    Sybase Power Designer
    Embarcadero (I forget the name of their ERD product).
