Yikes! <embarrassed> IT must have upgraded my Visio after my last hard
drive replacement, and it never occurred to me to look. I used to have
Standard, but I now see that I can create data model diagrams.

I'll look more deeply later today, but do you know if I can point it at
the database and have Visio generate the diagram?

Sounds like what I do with Visio

Perhaps you have only Standard? Visio 2007 Professional can reverse
engineer/refresh database models.
