Importing from DDL SQL script (or XML)
If you've already got a running database, and you want to visualize it, simply follow the steps on this page.
Start by clicking on the
Create new document button.
Create next to the physical model option.
In the pop-up, provide a name, select the database engine that suits you, and in the Content section select
From SQL. You'll be able to upload your SQL file. If you want to re-import the Vertabelo model from an XML model, proceed with the
From XML option.
If you've selected the correct file, click on the
Import SQL button. Wait for a few seconds until the Successfully import text shows up – then click on the
START MODELING button.
And you're done! You may start working on the model.
Adding some elements to an existing model
You may add some elements from an SQL script using the Main toolbar (see where here). You may also import the SQL/XML file to a separate model, and copy&paste some elements between the models (using classic keyboard shortcuts or buttons located in the main toolbar).
