I am trying to trasfer database diagram from SQL server 2000 database to SQL server 2005 database. I followed thru steps of this article but did not see diagrams in sql 2005 db. I see entries in dtproperties table for them. How do I get them in database on sql 2005. Any help will be greatly appreciate.

You cannot move database diagrams from SS2K to SS2K5. You have to recreate the database diagrams in SQL Server 2005 since the database diagrams are saved in sysdiagrams table. In sql 2000 they are saved in dtproperties table.
