Hi Friends, i've a little problem with a database design, and i've found several solutions....but i'd like to heard from you...

The example is really easy...

User            Message
--------        --------
IdUser         IdMessage
Name          Date
                   Title
                   Body

Each User has some data that is only for that user like readed, active....

What E/R Model should cover this and without finishing in a cyclical relation between User and Message.. If....

Send Action
1 user can send 1 or many messages
1 message can be sent by only 1 user

Receive Action
1 user can receive 1 or many messages
1 message is owned by 1 user.

Regards and Thanks in Advance. Received on Tue Apr 24 2001 - 04:56:57 CDT
