Need modelling advice for time reporting system

Need modelling advice for time reporting system

Need modelling advice for time reporting system



I am new to this forum!

I´ve been asked to do the database modelling for a time reporting system. I don´t however have much experience of modelling.

The user is supposed to type his or her number of debited hours. My question is which tables do I need and so on. Does anyone know where I can find useful information on this topic, please? I know it´s a big question, but I appreciate any help!

Thanks in advance!


RE: Need modelling advice for time reporting system

You're in the wrong place.  You probably need here [forum669].

More generally, you probably also need a database design primer.  I include a link to one, although I cannot vouch for its quality, just the first I found on Google.


In terms of what you need, think about what you need the outputs to be, what data you need to achieve these outputs then how to store it efficiently and how to control the storage.

I hope this helps.
