What do you mean by "mapped to"? Are you referring to a referential integrity/foreign keys? If a foreign key doesn't exist, then there isn't a way to find the relationship unless the column is named the same in other tables or by running a trace.

Do you mean some sort of object mapping , where a database schema is extracted and mapped from the application side?
