The Reverse Engineering Quick Start Guide

The Reverse Engineering function allows to read a structure of the existing database into the "Apricot DB" application.

I've got a small SQL Server database, which I've created for the demonstration purposes:


I want to import a structure of this database into "Apricot DB".

 Push "Reverse Engineering" button in the toolbar:



In the Connect to the database form put parameters of the connection and push "Forward":

 The selection form will be offered then. Here you can select of deselect tables for the import into "Apricot DB". 


The results of the Reverse Engineering process have been presented in the ER- diagram:

From this point you can proceed with further editing of the database structure in "Apricot DB".
