Note to all SO beginner:

Please read (and embrace!) Jon Skeet's helpful hints on how to write a good question (or at least his short version here ) - one that has a chance that someone can answer it.


A Pascal/Delphi programmer and database freak at heart, I work as a C# developer on line-of-business applications (mostly ASP.NET).

I'm interested mostly in distributed systems (WCF), database (design and SQL), and Active Directory.


I'm an MCPD .NET 4 Web Developer, MCPD .NET 4 Windows Developer, MCPD Enterprise Application Developer (.NET 3.5), and MCTS for WCF, ADO.NET, Winforms and ASP.NET.

comment Normalisation of practise database
By default, every table ought to have a primary key! It's what reliably, uniquely identifies each row of the table - so NO, by no means just ignore adding primary key to your tables! That's a horrible design ....
