I'm looking for some advice regarding creating a well-designed database site.
The scenario is this:
I have a main database that holds all my users' data,
I'll call it UserData.
Now I want to make a sort of Search By Category form, which will
output those users from UserData which meet the criteria.
Ive thought of 2 ways to do this:
1. Create a new table. Then connect to UserData,
grab the necessary info and dump them into the new table.
Then the user can manipulate this new table.
Connection to UserData is closed.
2. Connect to UserData everytime something is performed, like search or sort etc.
So which do you think is a better way? Thanks for any advice.
