Database Field Advice
Hi,

I'm setting up a table of public (national) holidays in different countries. I guess each country will have between 10 and 25 dates to be entered. If my limited knowledge of good database planning is correct, it's not good practice to enter something like (mm/dd) - 01/15,02/25,03/04,04/21,05/23,06/18,07/03,08/30,etc. into one field. I think each date should be entered seperatly but that means the user will have to enter 10 to 25 records which I don't want.

Any suggestions on how to handle this kind of problem?

Thank you.

Simon.
