You may find that most of the applications out there which are freeware will only support the common databases out there which are also available for free or for limited cost.
Teradata will likely not be available in freeware data modelling software.
The software I have used in the past which I know supports Teradata are:
IBM Data Architect
You may want to have a look at the following website which gives a number of data modelling software options (mixed amongst UML and other modelling tools). There may be a software package listed that can give you what you want.

The best modeling tools for Teradata that I've seen are the Embarcadero tool and ErWin. Depending upon what you're trying to do, I'd take a good strong look at Wherescape Red as well. Though not a typical data modeling tool, its an excellent data warehouse building tool. always...just my two cents...

Some drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle.

Hi All,


I am new to the Data Modelling, I have a table X1 which has 2-Primary Keys X1 and X2. Well in table we should not have an 2PI. I would like to make X2 as a Secondary  Index.

Can any one let me know please. Here is what I did I right click on Column Properties --- Index Properties and Unchecked the X2. Then X2 has changed FK then that will act as Secondary Index?

Please, let me know if I am wrong.
