    Looks wonderful! If only could export an .sql dump file from this graphic.

    Actually, it *can* be exported as XML data. I wonder if it’s possible to export the XML to an SQL? I don’t know enough about SQL to know (yet).

    Don’t you have Navicat, Owen? Would this tutorial do it?:

    Yeah, but XML is only a document type which would include the content with the names of the fields. High-end database design applications allow you to export SQL queries from your GUI that create databases, with tables, with fields and corresponding data types automatically.

    Speaking of Navicat, its great for what it does but I’ve found its UI very hard to use. I just transferred the Art Review system to a new server and had an impossible time getting Navicat to run a MySQL dump query.

    I would try Sequel Pro instead. Its free, does everything Navicat does, but is easier to use, doesn’t crash when your computer goes to sleep (or you close your laptop), and moving data was so much easier. And did I mention free?
