    Unanswered: Two locations for db

    I have created a field which dictates a plant location. I want the db to, once the location is selected, to know which table to save the entry to. Any idea how I can do that?

    What is the structure of your tables? Are they identical? Having a different table for each plant doesn't really sound like good database design.
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything foolproof...is that fools are so darn ingenious!
