How should I setup Shipping and Receiving tables for RDBMS?
Ok, so I am a student, and have VERY limited experience with databases, but I am trying to build the tables for a Shipping company for an assignment. Currently I have The following 10 tables [with attributes] (it will not allow me to post an image): Table1 ====== Customer[PK - CustId, CustAddressId(FK from table "Address"), CustBusName,....], Table2 ====== PU_Man [PK - PUManId, PUDate, PUComments, PUPackageId (FK from table "Package"), PUCustId (FK from table "Customer"), PUDTID (FK from table DriverTruckRef)] Table3 ====== Del_Man [PK - DelManId, DelDate, DelComments, DelPackageId (FK from table "Package"), DelCustId (FK from table "Customer"), DelDTId (FK from table DriverTruckRef)] Table4 ====== Truck [PK - TruckVin#, TimeLoggedOut, .....], Table5 ====== Driver [PK - DriverId, DriverFN, DriverLN, DriverRoute# (FK from table "Route"),....] Table6 ====== DriverTruckRef [PK - DTId, DriverId (FK from table "Driver")] Table7 ====== Address [PK - AddressId, AddressCustId (FK from Customer table), Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip] Table8 ====== Package [PK - PackageId, PackagePUCondition, PackagePUProblems, PackageDelCondition, PackageDelProblems] Table9 ====== Route [PK - RouteId, AddressId (FFK from table "Address")] Table10 ======= Payment [PK - PaymentId, PaymentCustomerId (FK from customer table), PaymentPackageId (FK from "Package" table), PaymentType, PaymentInfo, PaymentAmt, PaymentAddressId (FK from table "Address")] I know this is probably the easiest scenario out there for anyone who is experienced, but I am hoping someone can just rip this piece to shreds so that I can see the big picture. Before the shredding of my pride begins, I know the 1:1/n:m/1:m/etc relationships are incorrect, but I need a visual representation of the tables, and Access is what I had to go with. The PK/FK is more the focus. Also, I am thinking maybe I need to break down the Payment table as well. Any criticism and advice would be much appreciated.
Maybe this will get you started - every line is a table and the table details are omitted, focusing on keys Customer Customer*-Addresses* Addresses Packages Destinations[Addresses,Packages] DeliveryLog[Package,Driver,Route] DeliveryAttemptLog[...] Trucks Trucks*-Drivers* Drivers Hubs Hubs*-Trucks* Hubs*-Drivers* Locations[Packages,Hubs] Loadings[Packages,Trucks] Routes Routes*-Addresses* Packages*-Routes* It can get pretty complicated depending on the flexibility you want.
