DATABASE STRUCTURE

by: AndrewMcLaughlin500

Rating7.6Very Good

Hi,

( this one's coming from a wide angle I'm afraid)

My company has a contract with an external software provider who provide client/user sortware to use to access a database over the internet which they maintain.   Users at my company use the software to access the data ( which is about my company), input new data and create reports etc

We have had various problems with the software and I am trying to put together a picture of this database and believe it to be an Oracle database ( cos Oracle is mentioned in the contract)

Do Oracle databases provide functionality to print off a  Database structure ( I'm familiar with relationship diagrams in MS Access and one of these would be good)  - list of table names and table fields and how they're joined.

I need to know if this is feasible so that I can put the question to the software provides who tend not to action any requests that are not specific.

Can anybody give any advice on this?

Thanks,

Andrew

    Is there any clever way to stage and interaction between an XP machine and an Oracle server without using Oracle client software? The idea is to build a simple, standalone application that allows users with Oracle access credentials to log in to the server and run simple queries from any machine, regardless of whether or not Oracle client software is installed…

  4. Oracle vs. Access
    Which is better (in your opinion)- Oracle or Access? Also, would it mess up my friend's laptop if I was using Access on the same machine as Oracle?
  5. Create a DB Link to access 1 table only
    I want to create a db link that will have access to only 1 remote table.
