john writes "hi!
I am using WIN XP-PROF, sql-2000. I stuck with a problem.
I designed tables like the ones below ..

Personal Details table
MemberID Name Tel Fax
1 Karthik 0201... 1240..
2 Watson 02081.. 1245..
3 Andrew 343... 3444..
....and so on for ten more members (say).

and other table goes like this

Selected Credits table
CreditID Title Director Description
1 Band Aid 20 Karthik 60mins Documentary.Channel 4
2 Cosmic Relief Karthik 60mins Documentary.BBC TV

This is a CV design page of directors. Now each candidate can enter as many selected credits as they like say maximum 6 or 7.So if karthik has directed 6 films (say)and Watson has directed 5 films (say) and so on the rest .
My Question is how should i relate each person with his own selected credits. I need to display his CV with all his selected credits and personal details. I need to do for 50 people like that . I cant relate them in any way to extract the information of single person.
Are there any ideas to solve this problem.
I would really appreciate your help
thanks in advance.

I'm not sure I understand the problem but...

If each row of the selectedCredits table can only belong to 1 MemberID then you could add MemberID (as a foreign key) to the SelectedCredits table.

If 1 row of the selectedCredits table can belong to more than one MemberID then you will need an association table ie: MemberCredit (memberid, creditid)

Is that what you're looking for?
