Yes. I know of these. The point however, would be if something like
Oracle Designer, Erwin, Embarcadero or similar companies could actually
read the business areas and reverse engineer a picture of the
relationships. I've been googling for this lately with no luck. I
guess it simply does not exist and it sits in a grey area anyway with
respect to foreign keys etc. My opinion of this is that this should be
a feature of Discoverer, just as this is a feature of i.e. Business
Objects. But thanks for the input.

There are some eul workbooks that provide reports on the content of the
Business Areas. These reports may serve your need to report on the
contents of the BA/Folders/Items/Workbooks/relationships/etc..
look for the eul admin workbooks. you have to install them separately.

Subject: Discoverer ERD's
Does anyone out there know of a tool that might be used to graph a
Discovererer Business Area? This is sometimes the only documentation on
foreign keys and relations between tables that exists in companies. It
would be handy to extract that information using the BA's where they
exist. And yes, I am aware of that a Business Area may not accurately
reflect the structure of a database.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
