> Hi everyone,
> I'd like to know how you would set up the following:

> where different products can now belong to more than 1 category.
> How would you create this?
> 1. Would you duplicate the records for items that belong to more than 1
> category and change the categories in those duplicated records?
> 2. Would you enter multiple categories into 1 column?
> 3. Would you create a different database that tracks categories and creat
> many to many relationship?
