Re: mySQL trigger on record that creates a new table

The general issue is that each record/table will vary in size and leave a lot of Null. Each table will have anywhere from 30-500 records, for anywhere from 6 to 48 months.

I was thinking of using the primary table as the centerpiece of a m:m relationship as there will be more tables that are reference tables.

Basically the user would fill out: Company Name, Location, # of Months, and start date.

I would use Co Name as the key relationship, and create column(s) for # of Months where an initial value is inputted (x) and then later on can be updated (y) while retaining that initial value. Displaying x of y and be able to query discrepancies between x & y.

Lol - I am not sure this explanation helps or hurts my case. I am guessing that although the queries may be more complicated this would help with perf and organization... but maybe not. I am just prototyping ideas at the moment and looking for general help/ideas as I reacclimate myself with SQL and Access (instead of excel and pivot tables).
