I am rather new to DBs, and after days of being stuck, researching and trying different solutions, I turn to this community's expertise for help.
I am trying to have one Person table in my MSSQL DB, that would contain all our contacts. Keeping all in one table facilitates a lot of things for us downstream. Challenge is we have to split the Company table into different tables, by categories, as we need different attributes for each - e.g. Fuel Supplier, Engine Manufacturer and Maintenance Company would each have their own table, listing companies in said category, with their own specific attributes.
Therefore, I would need a "one table to many tables" relationship where the various Company tables feed into only one attribute ("Company") in the Person table. Goal being that within a Person record, one could choose the Company that person works for - only one company, from across multiple tables.
Is there a way to achieve this or any workaround?
Thanks for your help!
