    Hello Fellow IDMSers!
      For those that aren't aware; there exists a FREE Schema Diagram Mapper that has been available since 2013!
        Yes, it draws data diagrams from your CA-IDMS Schemas for you that can be printed.

      Many Kudos (thanks) to Luc Hermans from the European CA-IDMS User Group for developing AND providing this tool!

       

      Take good care,
