My question is how to prevent duplicated street addresses when an apartment # is involved.
IE: If there is Street address of 100 Main St, But there are 200 apartments in this bldg. I don't want to have a 200 different Main Street entries with the individual apartment #'s.
I want to be able to have the 100 Main St as an individual entry and then have the apartments entered in another field. If I put the Apartment field in the address table, then the 100 Main St will be changed each time an apartment number is entered. (Hope I am making sense!); or there will be 200 different 100 Main St entries
The only option I can think of is to have the Apartment field reside in the client table - since it is unique to the client; Or making a separate table for the apartment # and use it as a look up in the address table? Would that work?
Looking for direction,as I have spent too much time mulling over this. It's probably a very simple solution, but I can't seem to make sense of it.
Thank you for any help!
