I have two DB tables that are in a 1 - N relationship. I need to enter data 
once in the 1-side, and then many times data on the N-side.

(For those who like it less abstract: The 1-side is a table with data about a 
car (frame number, brand + type, and a carrier), the N-side has records about 
damages found on that car after transport)

I'm a little bit confused about how to deal with this:
