Re: [MS_AccessPros] Defining property ownership


you may want to store pcShare as currency instead of double if you don't need more than 4 decimal places

Hi Jan,

Property and Properties are both reserved words so be sure not to use them for any names.


I usually call the table Props ... perhaps something like this

- PropID, PK (Primary Key)
- PropName -- however you will refer to the property in lists, ie: address1, city
- address1
- address2
- city
- st (State is also reserved)
- zip1
- zip2

- OwnerID, autonumber, PK (Primary Key)
- OwnerName
- etc

- PropSaleID, autonumber, PK (Primary Key)
- PropID, Long, FK (Foreign Key) to Props
- DateSold, date of sale
- AmtSale, currency, amount of sale
- etc

- PropOwnID, autonumber, PK (Primary Key)
- PropSaleID, Long, FK (Foreign Key) to PropSales
- OwnerID, Long, FK (Foreign Key) to Owners
- pcShare, double, percent of ownership

warm regards,

I have a PROPERTY table and an OWNER table. I want to keep a history of who owned what property, when, and who is the current owner.

I was planning on using a third table with 4 fields. Property, Owner, Date Purchased, Date Sold. With the obvious relationships to the PROPERTY and OWNER tables. I had assumed a blank Date Sold field would allow me to indicate the current owner.  However, I want to make sure I don't have active two Property/Owner relationships.  That is, the same PROPERTY with an open Date Sold field for two owners.

I am not wedded to this design but I cannot think how I could do a validation for this on data entry.

This has to happen in databases all the time. How would you suggest I design or validate my way out of this?
