Quick-and-dirty: forget database normalization. Be quick. The app is done in two hours. Drawback; creating report will like programming-in-hell.
Old-Fashioned-style: carefull database design with all data normalization. Creating a comlex input form (usualy consist of cross-tab) need more time. But in the end, any report will be done with ease.
Lesson learned: NEVER do the quick-and-dirty. Quick is only happen once. You'll get the dirty for the rest of app live.
