Hi Everyone, So having learned my lesson with the last application, I am trying to plan out the addition of a feature to my database application. Basically, some of my customers go south for the winter ("Snow Birds") what I would like to do is have away of storing both their addresses in the database, and have it so that the people administering the list can choose between wether they are up north or down south without having to erase the old address. For that I was thinking creating a second table "SnowBirds" and list their southern addresses in there and then when the list admin clicks on the edit button for their name, it would also be able to pull up a list of the the addresses stored and associated with that person. I'm also considering adding a date range for the addresses so that if they know they'll be south from November to March it will check the date and switch between the record accordingly BEFORE exporting to excel. Now... I haven't really asked a question yet but gave some background into what I want to do. Sooooo... Here's the question, does anyone have any advice on the best way to do it? Am I right in thinking that a second table is required? Would it be called a Relational database? Or have I missed the terminology? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking! ohhh... and in case it makes a difference it's MySQL 5.* and I'll be writing the stuff to access that database with php 5. -- Jason Pruim Raoset Inc.
