Databse design question....

Recommended Posts


I am designing a database, my first one, for a t-shirt website. I have tables for the individual t-shirts, as well as a linked table for all the colors the shirts come in. They share a "color_id" field that is in both tables.

My question is: what do I do if some of the shirts come in more than one color?  How can I design a databse that allows for shirts to have multiple options from the same table???

Any help would be awesome...

You need 3 tables -- shirts, colours, and shirt_colours.  The latter is simply a list of pairings -- you can have as many combinations as you wish.
