Entity Relationship List report

Entity Relationship List report

Entity Relationship List report

When I run a entity relationship list it seems like my relationship verbs are backwards. I have used Oracle Designer or ERwin for modeling in the past. In these tools I place the parent (Entity 1) verb next to the parent and the cardinality is on the child (Entity 2) side. It appears like you enter them this way when you enter them in the Relationship properties dialog box. But when I run the report they report backwards. Entity 2 -> Entity 1 Role verb is really Entity 1 -> Entity 2 Role verb. Is there a known problem with the headings on this list or do I really have things backwards.
