 CASE/data modeling tool that draws Bachman diagrams?

Does anyone know of a CASE or data modeling tool that can create
what a guy around here calls a "Bachman" diagram?

* The diagrams of the "pubs" database in the Sybase manuals is the *
* type of thing I'm after                                          *

ex.)     +------------+    +------------+
         | tablename  |    | tablename  |
         +------------+    +------------+
         | attrib     |<->>| attrib     |
         | attrib     |    | attrib     |
         | attrib     |    | attrib     |
         +------------+    +------------+

This is not the same as an E-R diagram.  I just want to display the
entities, their attributes, and how the entities are related.
(We have a couple analysts whose experience tells them that E-R diagrams
are too busy to present to users.)

If you can provide a vendor name (& maybe phone#), I'd appreciate it.

I just purchased Microsoft Access which has an SQL server interface.  It
constructs these types of diagrams on the fly when you construct a query.
They even mention that you can print such a diagram by constructing a
bogus query which includes all your tables.  Access adds the relationship
lines for you.  Since at $99, Access is a good buy anyway (IMHO), perhaps
you can give it a try.

ERDRAW for SunOS is free to government sites from LBL.
It draws EER diagrams, which are similar to what the original
poster had in mind.  The price is right and it works, if
you meet the criteria (Sun + the gummint)....
