    yes it can be done

    you can either create your own unique numbering system or you fake it

    you need to make sure which answer meets the requirements of your course

    if you need to store the value as one column in the db then you need to write your own mechanism

    if you can wing it then you store the data as required, display as a composite


    but its coursework, you should have a good idea of what is required for your coursework
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
