How to create child entity in Powerdesigner

How to create child entity in Powerdesigner

Hi All,

I recently started using Power designer 16.5.

I did not understand how to create a child entity. For example, I have an employee entity and a children entity. Using Power designer I created two entities employee and children in Conceptual diagram. Now Im not able to change Children into a child entity.

In the properties of Children entity, I see <none> for attribute "Parent entity" and also does not give me any option beside it.

Can you please help me to create a Child entity?

KR, vami

RE: How to create child entity in Powerdesigner

I believe if you create the child entity, and then before doing any columns, drag copies of the columns from the parent entity into the child, it will recognize that it is a child entity. Pretty sure. I haven't used PD in awhile but Erwin lets you do it that way.
