    Database Design

    Hello,

    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

    Think about how your data represents "things" in the real world. There should be one table for each "thing" you manipulate, although that could be more or sometimes less than the number of forms on your screen.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
