Table relationship column mapping order
« on: October 04, 2006, 12:40:54 am »
When viewing a database relationship on the diagram,
at the destination end, we have the destinationKey.  At the origin end we have the originColumnSet.  In the middle we have the column mapping.

However, instead of the (intuitive) destinationColumn = originColumn, we get originColumn = destinationColumn

I think it would be better as the more intuitive layout:

destinationKey ... destinationColumn = originColumn ... originColumnSet

Thoughts?  Votes?
