Example text

In general, making the adjustments necessary to ensure first normal form is not hard, and it is a good general rule that table schemes should be put in first normal form. However, as with the other normal forms (and even more so the higher up we go) each situation must be considered on its own merits. For instance, a single field might be designed to hold a street address, such as 1333 Bessemer Street. Whether the house number and the street name should be separated into distinct attributes is a matter of context.

When data are stored in multiple tables, it is necessary to piece the data back together to provide these various views. 00. This requires gathering data from more than one table. The point is that, by breaking data into separate tables, we must often go to the trouble of piecing the data back together in order to get a comprehensive view of those data. Thus, we can state the following important maxim: As a direct consequence of good database design, we often need to use methods for piecing data from several tables into a single coherent form.

If we knew that the person had no phone number, then the information would no longer be unknown. In this case, the appropriate value of the AuPhone attribute would be the empty string, or perhaps the string "no phone," but not a NULL. Thus, the appropriateness of allowing NULL values for an attribute depends upon the context. The issue of whether NULLs should appear in a key needs some discussion. The purpose of a key is to provide a means for uniquely identifying entities and so it would seem that keys and NULLs are incompatible.
