    Unanswered: DB Design


    I have two web forms, one form is a subset of the other form, but they are essentially two different type of requests. And I'm thinking how to design the database.

    should i create three tables? One main that holds who submitted it etc and two seperate tables to hold the form information?

    should i create just one table that holds all the information?

    should i create two tables; one for the information who submitted and one for the form data?

    Thanks in advance

    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Oversimplified but still: You should create tables (relations) according to the nature of your data and their relationships, and NOT according to the presentation (forms).
