Unanswered: Database Relationships
I have worked with databases, and have created simple databases.
I am not real familiar with designing databases and defining relationships.
I know how to actually create the relationships between tables with primary keys and stuff, but what I am not sure of is the logic of database design and the use of relationships.
What I want to do is have a table with a list of computers, specs, etc.
Then have other tables, each one representing a vendor, and listing that vendors applications (Like having table with a list of microsoft applications).
Then what I want to do is create some type of relationship where I can check off whether a certain application from a certain vendor is installed on a certain computer.
I know how to create forms and everything, I am just not sure how I should design the tables and create the relationships.
I hope I explained everything well enough.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
Here are some database tutorials I wrote a while back on referential integrity and normalization.
