Open original thread
Hi everybody,
I have started to design a database and every time i rethink about it, i am finding that i can use a new table instead of a field, and enhance the program ability.

but at the end i find out that there are a lot of tables with a lot of relations,so it means a lot of queries to the database, but on the other hand it can make my software what i am looking for.

what is your idea? is it wrong to use a lot of relations in a database?

thank you for you answers.
