Re:Convert IDMS DDL to Relational DDL

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Apr 1, 2010
Does anyone know of, or have, a program\routine that can be used to convert IDMS DDL to relational DDL (DB2, Oracle, SQL Server) and vice versa? We want to be able to reverse engineer IDMS schemas into PowerDesigner for model documentation purposes.

Thank you,
