okay this is the issue
When you generate the PDM from the CDM, PowerDesigner generates, using
its own naming convention, the foreign key column that is placed in the
physical model table - we want to have control over this column name ie:
we want this foreign key column to be called f_key in our physical
table. Please note we are not talking about FK/PKconstraints names etc,
we are talking about the actual column name of the foreign key.
We have searched through the definition file and cannot find where its
Or is this not possible to control in PowerDesigner and you have ...Creating ALTER scripts for Foreign Keys in PowerDesigner
I know there is a setting in PowerDesigner 9.x that will allow me to
Generate Database and have it only produce the foreign keys (without the
Create Table scripts). I am looking for the generated SQL to be just ALTER
TABLE commands that create the foreign constraint references. Does anyone
know where I go to change the setting? Thanks!
In PowerDesigner 9.0.0, you must modify the DBMS file.
Under the script\object\reference object, set the FKInTable option to
no. In PowerDesigner 9.5, this setting can be set in the Database

Can you help me at some point.

I'm having a hard time using Powerdesigner beyond just a data-modeling tool.
I'd really like to understand how to use it as a full SDLC tool. It
sure looks like it can, but I don't see how to really go about it,
especially in light of the fact that organizations already have SDLC
standards. How do I fit PD into that lifecycle?
I'd really like to learn how to generate code from it, which involves
understanding how to get at the metadata and visual basic and such. I
used Erwin's macro capabilities and was completely blown away by the
power. Now I see PD, and I...PowerDesigner

is PowerDesigner included in the enterprise version of PowerBuilder 6.0 or
if so, which CD is PowerDesigner in?
PowerDesigner is part of the EAStudio package but not the PB stand-alone
package. I believe that is still the case even today with PB8. If you get
EAStudio, you get PB, PowerJ, PowerDesigner (remember that with PB8,
PowerSite has been rolled into the product and doesn't exist on it's own
any more). If you get just PB, you get just PB.
Now I find out EAStudio.

requires to uninstall v11.1 and then install v12.0 or is
there an upgrade software installation ?
V11 and V12 can coexist on the same system. If you leave V11 on during
the V12 install, it will give you the option to retain the V11 settings
in V12. This is a good thing. Then you can unintall V11 later.
