I don't know much about SQL Server, but I believe Oracle has a tool (Oracle Designer). This tools reads the Data Dictionary to provide a ERD (entity relationship dependencies) and ERM (entity relationship model). My understanding is that both will show you the relationships between all the tables in the database. Oracle has comprehensive documentation that available online: Perhaps you can search Oracle's site for "Oracle Designer." I'm very new to database software, so I'm sorry if I'm not much help. I'm taking a database class right now, but I'm only building the database (SQL). If you have a list of questions, I'll have my professor answer them. I'll pretend they're my questions. Hell, the class costs enough. ;)
