I have designed the Logical Model, pressed the double-arrow (Engineer to Relational Model) to get the Relational Model. Now I am ready to create a Physical Model for that Relational Model but how to do it?

In Browser, under your Relational Model, select Physical Models.


Right-click and select New.

Then select the RDBMS and the version you want for a Physical Model (in Data Modeler terminology it is the Database Site).


That’s it. You now have the Physical Model for the Relational Model. Note that you can have several Relational Models for one Logical Model and several Physical Models for one Relational Model, if needed.


NOTE: The Physical Model is not opened automatically when you open a design (for performance reasons). Go to the same Physical Models, right-click and select Open.
