About IDEF1X, Relational, and Crow's feet notation
There are many different ways to display cardinality (like onetomany). The Database Model Diagram template offers shapes for the two most popular methods: IDEF1X and Relational. Relational notation is selected by default when you open a new database model diagram. Both of these show the properties of relationships by changing the format of the table shapes and the relationship lines.
In addition to those styles you can choose to use the Crow's feet notation with either of them. Crow's feet notation changes only the ends of the relationship lines.
IDEF1X notation
In IDEF1X notation a solid circle indicates the foreign key side of the relationship (child table). If the child isn't required to have a parent there is an empty diamond at the parent side of the relationship.
Nonidentifying relationships are drawn with a dashed line; identifying ones with a solid line.
The cardinality is shown as:
(Blank) 
One to zero or more 
P 
One to one or more 
Z 
One to zero or one 
1 
One to exactly one 
Two numbers separated by a dash 
a range 
Relational notation
In Relational notation a solid arrow indicates the parent table.
Identifying relationships are indicated by the foreign key being placed in the top row with both the PK and FK designations.
The cardinality is shown as:
* 
One to zero or more 
1..* 
One to one or more 
0..1 
One to zero or one 
1 
Exactly one 
Two numbers separated by a dash

Crow's feet notation
Crow's feet notation indicates the parent table and optionality by using a standard set of marks that can be on either side of the relationship.
Empty circle and crow's foot 
Zero or more 
Single hatch mark and crow's foot 
One or more 
Single hatch mark and empty circle
