47 ] Data Grouping table: sale table: credit_rate column name sample value *internal_number 122 *date 2006-05-27 credit_rate_code F column name sample value *code F description fixed Proper validation in the application ensures that the inserted codes belong to the lookup tables. Multilingual Planning There is another benefit of using a code table: if we store the car condition new/used, it's more complex to do a multi-lingual application. On the other hand, if we code the car's condition, then we can have a condition table and a language table: table: condition table: language column name sample value language_code E condition_code N description new column name sample value language_code E description English Validating the Structure Validation is done by using precise examples, asking ourselves if we have a column to place all information, covering all cases.

To summarize this technique, we use a column whose value is a column name by itself. Even if this technique is shown here, I do not recommend using it, for the reasons explained in the Pitfalls of the Free Fields Technique section below. The difference between this technique and our car_event table is that, for car_event, the various attributes can all be related to a common subject, which is the event. On the contrary, free fields can store any kind of dissimilar data. This might also be a way to store data specific to a single instance or row of a table.

This tedious operation is not very practical in a 24/7 system availability context. Table Name into a Column Name Another style I often see: one would systematically add the table name as a prefix to ���������������������������� every����������������������� column name. Thus the car table would be comprised of the columns: car_id_number, car_serial_number. buyer_name from car, buyer [ 36 ] Chapter 3 Since at the application level, the majority of queries we code are multi-tables like the one used above, the clumsiness of using a table name even abbreviated as part of column names becomes readily apparent.
