Quick questions on Nulls and foreign key relationship. I've currently been asked to default all fields and even foreign key relationships to some default value. Even on left outer joins between rows that may not exist yet we have to set default values types using the isnull feature. My question is this, if a table ...

Hope this helps.
My NORMA 2010-12 for VS 2008 generates excellent normalized MySQL code except for one thing.
My model contains an entity that plays no roles but its reference scheme. This for the sake of compactness of the model: later it probably will play more roles, but for now, the number is enough.
As a result this entity is absorbed into ...
