What is the best approach if you are creating a mailing list and you have multiple people under the same address or you have the same person that has multiple addresses (vacation home). If I need a record for each person in the family to track birthdays but I want to be able to send a single mailing for the entire family for a holiday card, how should I set up the database? Do I create separate tables (1 that includes names and birthday's, etc.. and another that includes addresses) and create a relationship between the two tables or can I include all of the information in a single table and there is a way that I can indicate which address it should go to or when its a single mailing to multiple people.


Reply from Alex Hedley:

I'd have separate tables, you could then have an AddressID in the person table if you only want one, or a junction table of personid and addressid with as many records as you want, you could then do a groupby and if they all match for a family then only one would show for your report you wish to send.
