19 values into a database

Recommended Posts

First i am newish to php so am mainly looking for some reassurance.

I have a massive form where the user needs to enter 19 values for a match report.

I will then have 2 pages pulling data off the database. The first page will show about 5 fields, the second will show them all. The website that i am making it for will start with low traffic then steadily rise.

Is 19 values into 1 table going to be ok? Or should i try to separate the values?

I guess it would be fine to store it in one table, but it depends on what they are entering.

You can have as many in one table as you want, or split up throughout as many table's as you want.  Eventually you run into problem's if it's not organized, but keep it organized, use common sense.  And you should be fine.

Despite its name, common sense can be a rare commodity. The number of tables you use should be dictated by relationships between the data items and the rules of data normalization.
