Sample text

Bn . Our main interest is when there is only one attribute on the right: {A1,. ,Ak} {B} For instance, it is probably safe to say that: {PubName,PubPhone} {PubID} which is just another way of saying that there is only one publisher with a given name and phone number (including area code). It is very important to understand that a functional dependency means that the attributes on the left completely determine the attributes on the right for now and for all time to come, no matter what additional data may be added to the database.

As a very simple example, the table scheme: {ISBN,Title,Authors} is not even in first normal form, because the Authors attribute might contain more than one author and is therefore not atomic. By trading in this table scheme for the two schemes: {ISBN,Title,AuID} and {AuID,AuName} we have normalized the database into first normal form. Here is another example involving the higher normal forms. Recall from an earlier example that the table scheme {City,StreetName,ZipCode}, with dependencies: {City,StreetName} {ZipCode} and: {ZipCode} {City} is in third normal form.

Of course, this will not always make sense, since it may result in combining attribute values from different domains into one column. Let us consider an example of how to take a union in Microsoft Access. Unions can be formed in one of two ways in Microsoft Access. The first is straightforward: 1. First, we need some expendable tables to use in this example. We can create these tables by copying the BOOKS table as follows. Highlight the BOOKS table in the Database Window and choose Copy from the Edit menu.
